UDDI API - find_relatedBusinesses


Description : The find_relatedBusinesses function is used to discover businesses that have been related via the uddi-org:relationships model.

The response includes a root relatedBusinessesList element. If the UDDI operator returns only a partial list of matching results, the relatedBusinessesList element's truncated attribute will be set to true. If no matches are found, a relatedBusinessesList element with zero sub elements is returned.
