The description below seems reasonable to me. Does any one have any
My thanks to Luc for his responsiveness on this subject.
BTW maybe we should consider having the exact same question and answer
in our FAQ (with Luc's permission)?
ebXML Registry is a constituant part of the Electronic
Business using XML (ebXML) standard, which develops
standards and protocols to support business-to-business
(B2B) operations. The ebXML Registry TC has defined a
general purpose registry service for publishing and
discovery of arbitrary content and standardized metadata,
known as ebXML Reg/Rep. ebXML Reg/Rep is both a registry
and a repository.
UDDI, managed by the UDDI Spec TC, is focused as a
registry service for Web services and its artifacts.
Both UDDI and ebXML Registry may be used within the
organization and across organizations.
