A sap.com/tc~uddi application is running.
The application is started automatically when running the AS Java.
You are familiar with Web services and UDDI.
You have configured the UDDI server. For more information, see APIs .
Your user is assigned to an appropriate role.
SAP NetWeaver AS for Java provides a UDDI server and UDDI client that fully implement the Universal Description Discovery and Integration (UDDI) functions based on the UDDI v3.0 specification. You can find more information about UDDI and the UDDI specification at http://www.oasis-open.org.
The UDDI client provided by SAP represents a Web Dynpro application that you can use for publishing, browsing, and retrieving tModels, business entities, binding templates, and business services based on the standard UDDI specification. With the UDDI client, you can publish your services and business entities in a registry that is part of the AS Java installation, or in a third-party UDDI v3. compliant server.
To use the UDDI client, you need to be well familiar with the technical aspects of the processes occurring in the UDDI server.
SAP NetWeaver AS for Java provides also Services Registry, a more sophisticated and powerful tool for managing and accessing the information in the UDDI server. Services Registry contains definitions about enterprise services and references to their metadata. Additionally, it provides information about service consumers and physical systems where service providers offer their Web services. For more information, see Discovering Services in the Services Registry .
We recommend that you use Services Registry instead of the UDDI client for managing the information about the Web services published in the UDDI server.
Start a Web browser and access the UDDI client using the following address: http://<host>:<port>/sr/uddi
You can do the following with the UDDI client:
Search the UDDI server for business entities, business services, binding templates, and tModels.
For more information, see Searching in the UDDI Registry , Searching by Categories, Category Groups, or Identifiers , and Customizing the Search Results .
Create entities in the UDDI registry.
For more information, see Creating tModels and Business Entities .
Create business services.
For more information, see Creating Business Services .
Optionally, you can define settings for the UDDI key generator.
For more information, see Setting UDDI Keys Using the Key Generator .
Create publisher assertions between business entities.
For more information, see Creating Publisher Assertions .
Add details to business entities, business services, and tModels.
For more information, see Adding General Details to tModels, Business Entities or Services and Adding Specific Details to Business Entities .
Use the UDDI client with a third-party UDDI v3.0-compliant server.
For more information, see Connecting the UDDI Client to Another UDDI Server .
The default SOAP APIs exposed by the UDDI server are as follows:
Inquiry API: http://<host>:<port>/uddi/api/inquiry
Publishing API: http(s)://<host>:<port>/uddi/api/publish
Security API: http://<host>:<port>/uddi/api/security
Subscription API: http://<host>:<port>/uddi/api/subscription
The <host>:<port> part of these addresses represents the host name and HTTP port number relevant to your SAP NetWeaver AS for Java installation. The use of HTTP proxy for accessing the publishing API is determined by the configuration settings.
