UDDI API - find_binding


The find_bindings function searches for template binding records associated with a specified service and the specified tModel record(s).

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

serviceKey − Required uuid_key attribute specifying the associated businessService.

maxRows − Optional attribute to specify the maximum number of rows to be returned; if maxRows is exceeded, the bindingDetail element's truncated attribute will be set to true.
