I am not sure if this is the right place for this query ,I will be grateful though for any information in this direction.
My query is regarding the services that are likely to become webservices and the need for uddi.
In my opnion there are two senarios where webservies might find place
1.b2b.
2.b2c.
Firstly in a b2b senario one business knows the other.Where is the need to dynamically discover the service using uddi?
In a b2c senario when if the client doesnot know the business service provider the need for uddi is warrnated,but here the client(i am referening to an end user) needs to soap aware and soap capable to avail those services.To what extent is this a realistic expectation?
If i am wrong in my extrapolation regd the likely webservices, what services to become webservices?
I may have been myopic in my opinion formation,pl feel free to make me aware of the possiblities that i have overlooked.
Thaking you

I believe the intent with UDDI is to permit you to locate services without any prior knowledge about the company likely to offer them. Hopefully this will reduce the cost of making your business known.
I suspect that the details of making a connection to a SOAP service will generally be automatic and guided by WSDL.
See this recent article!

I am not contesting the intent of UDDI,as i had already stated, it enables dynamic dicovery of the service info .What i am not sure is, what is the senario which would call for dynamic discovery?Explation with the aid of a business senario as an example will be ideal
Thanks in advance
