Manage the UDDI registry
Use the WebSphere Application Server administrative console or the JMX management interface to manage all the policies and properties of the UDDI registry.
Use JMX to monitor and configure UDDI registries programmatically, and use the UDDI registry administrative interface.
To manage UDDI nodes programmatically, we can use the following interfaces and tools:
- UDDI registry administrative (JMX) interface
The UDDI registry administrative (JMX) interface provides a Java API we can use to manage runtime configuration settings to control UDDI registry runtime behavior, such as setting the maximum number of results that UDDI users can receive for inquiry requests, or creating publish limits for UDDI publishers. Sample client code is provided for you to build on.
- User-defined value sets
The UDDI Version 3 registry provides tools we can use to manage our own categorization value sets, including loading value set data into a UDDI registry node. If we add custom value sets, UDDI entities can be categorized more specifically when they are published, so that clients can find specific data more efficiently.
- UDDI Utility Tools
The UDDI Utility Tools is a suite of functions and a Java API that we can use to promote v2 entities from one UDDI registry to another while retaining entity keys. This capability is particularly useful for publishing canonical tModels with a predefined key.
To manage UDDI registries using the WAS administrative console, start from the UDDI link in the navigation pane of the administrative console. If administrative security is enabled, we must log in to the administrative console and supply a valid user ID and password, to use the UDDI management functions. We can complete the following operations:
- View and manage the status of all UDDI nodes in a cell.
- Initialize UDDI nodes with required settings.
- Configure general properties that affect UDDI runtime behavior.
- Manage UDDI policy settings.
- Create, view and update UDDI publishers.
- Create, view and update publisher tiers that limit how many UDDI entries can be published.
- View and manage the status of value sets.
- Back up and restore the UDDI registry database
