Abstract

This invention disclosure describes an extension to the capabilities of a Web Services repository to enable selective Publish/Subscribe operations. Interested parties will have the ability to subscribe to a service, specifying details about the service calls they would be interested in receiving. Later, when the service is invoked, instead of the Publish/Subscribe utility fanning out the request to ALL subscribed clients, it would instead only be fanned out to those who have registered an interest in that specific request.
