UDDI provides a mechanism that may be used by publishers to categorize
businessEntity and tModel elements according to any number of category
systems and by inquirers to discover entities so categorized. See Appendix F
Using Categorization for more information.
This section defines a tModel used to categorize a businessEntity as
representing a UDDI node in the registry in which the businessEntity appears.
See Section 184.108.40.206 Normative Modeling of Node Business Entity.
220.127.116.11 Design Goals Each UDDI registry can be comprised of a number of
nodes. Each UDDI node has a special businessEntity associated with it, called
its Node Business Entity. The businessService elements in this businessEntity
represent Web services that relate to the node's role in the UDDI registry.
The uddi-org:nodes category system is designed to allow reliable discovery of
the Node Business Entity structures for nodes in a UDDI registry so that UDDI
clients can locate the businessService structures associated with the
operation of the registry.
Checking of references to this value set consists of ensuring that the
publisher is the UDDI node and the keyValue has the value "node". Each node
allows the use of uddi-org:nodes only by itself, only on its own Node
Business Entity, and only with the value of "node". This value is used in the
keyValue attributes of keyedReference elements that are contained in
categoryBag elements to locate the Node Business Entity elements in the
