I just can't understand why UDDI is not used more. Take the plaging problem of endpoint management. Almost every person and tool out there seems just happy with hardwiring URLs in code, or using ad-hoc solutions such as property files, databases, or more bizarre ones to store endpoints. Registries are basic stuff in any distributed architecture, but for some reason, almost nobody uses them for SOA. They talk about high level SOA principles, while blowing away the basic one of "separate configuration from code".

I fully agree with you regarding UDDI: extend it, do not throw it away.
