Bertram -

Our current approach is to use the OGSA service registry approach (its 
called "ServiceGroup" in the OGSA documentation.  We have set it up on 
some test servers for EcoGrid, but have not yet deployed the production 
version.  That is one of my tasks.  See the registry related bugs in 
bugzilla for details.  You can also see the OGSI description of it here:


(starting on page 56).

We considered UDDI, but decided it 1) does very little for its level of 
complexity, and 2) doesn't support some core needed features, such as 
dynamic service metadata.  The Grid model is much better in several 
important respects for scientific computing.  Hope this helps,
