Ever run into problems that you 'think' may be related to not being able to access the UDDI service? I wrote a script that should help you (and me) determine if the UDDI service is up or down.

Here is the source. Again, use at your own risk, make sure that if you are copying and pasting that you check the longer strings to make sure they haven't newlined on you...and of course, add some error checking. It continues to amaze me how poor my formatting, commenting, and coding skills are. I only write this stuff for me usually, so I don't care if it's not formatted correctly, or if there are 'better' ways to do it. My goal is to write as little code as possible to get what I need. ;)
