Continuing their joint work to further the XML Web services family of interoperability specifications, IBM and Microsoft have released a Web Services Inspection (WS-Inspection) specification.

The WS-Inspection specification itself defines how an application can discover an XML Web service description on a Web server, enabling developers to easily browse Web servers for XML Web services.

WS-Inspection complements the Universal Description, Discovery and Integration (UDDI) global directory technology by facilitating the discovery of available services on Web sites unlisted in the UDDI registries, and builds on Microsoft’s SOAP Discovery technology built into Visual Studio .NET.
