I spent some time today looking at Microsoft’s Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) Guidance Toolkit, and this reminded me of an issue which we noticed a year ago, and did attempt to raise with Microsoft at the time, but which I never blogged about. It’s always a little uncomfortable taking the good people at Redmond to task, but, while this is hardly the most urgent problem facing today’s world, it is, nevertheless, a bit of a problem and something which should be addressed.

In the article, I discuss the problem, where the Toolkit goes wrong, how UDDI should be used, and a possible remedy. The article is at http://geekswithblogs.net/cyoung/archive/2008/11/12/126975.aspx.
