Sun's Web Service Quiz Page
has following question.

UDDI is a registry and a repository
A. True, because it also allows business documents like schemas and WSDL to be stored in it
B. False, because the the actual content is never stored in UDDI.

It says correct answer is B.

However, in section 3.6.1
Java Web Service Blueprint says
Keep in mind that the public registry holds the Web service description, which consists not only of the service's WSDL description but also any XML schemas referenced by the service description.

But further in section 3.6.2
Java Web Services Blueprint Section 3.6.2it says
Public registries are not repositories.

Help me sort this out ?

The question and the related options are ambiguous because it is not at all clear what "content" here stands for. Is it the web services classes themselves or just the description documents? A repository is usually meant in the sense of a location where the web services themselves are stored, which is not the case of UDDI. Personally, I would answer B keeping in mind that content means the actual web service implementation stuff.

correct Answer should be "B" .As we never stored WSDL and Schema in UDDI.

So correct answer should be B.
