Universal Description Discovery and Integration UDDI is not capable of handling semantic markups for Web services due to its flat data model and limited search capabilities. In this paper, the authors introduce an approach to support semantic service description and match making with registries that conform to the UDDI V3 specification. Specifically, they discuss how to store complex semantic markups in a UDDI data model and use that information to perform semantic query processing. Their approach does not require any modification to the existing UDDI registry or infrastructure. The advantage is that it is completely backward compatible. The add-on modules only need to be installed on the clients of users who wish to take advantage of semantic markups. They can be integrated seamlessly into existing systems and operations without any modification of the infrastructure.
