Hi All,
I'm confused about how to go about registering and then discovering web services dynamically using WSIL or UDDI.
I'm using axis, tomcat, eclipse and mySQL for this project. I have written a top down web service and used axis to generate a client for me, this works fine and I can run and test the services using the client. The location of the service is hardcoded into the client however, so I would like to know if I have to scrap this client code generated by axis and write new code that tries to discover the service dynamically, using WSIL or UDDI or can I still utilise the axis client code. I hasten to add I am a total newbie to web services.

I agree. Here's the link:
