Busting the UBR Revisionists I'm sorry - that whole thing about the UBR being an interoperability test really bugged me. And it wasn't just Microsoft that sent out the BIG FAT LIE, IBM did it too.
So, how do you prove 'revisionist' thinking on the web? That's easy - you go back in time. Yes, you visit the WayBackMachine!
And I quote from the Microsoft UDDI site:
Or do you prefer this one:
Most importantly, UDDI involves the shared implementation of a Web Service based on the UDDI specifications. This Web Service -- the UDDI Business Registry -- is an Internet directory of businesses and the applications they have exposed as Web Services for trading partners and customers to use. Business programs will use the UDDI Business Registry to determine the specifications for programs at other companies in a manner similar to how people use Web search engines today to find websites. This automated application-to-application discovery and integration over the Internet will help eliminate many of the configuration and compatibility problems that are preventing businesses from more widely adopting B2B, despite B2B's potential for cost savings and improved efficiency.
What I don't understand - is how these marketing-whiz-kids thought that they wouldn't get called out on this. This is the age of the Internet - where everything is archived.
See it for yourself:
