    SAN JOSE, Calif., April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Leaders from all sectors of
 the software development arena are converging in San Jose next week to share
 thought-provoking opinions, news, products and business opportunities at
 the brand-new Web Services World conference, part of SD 2001.  Produced by
 CMP Media, the Software Development Conference and Expo is quickly gaining
 momentum due in large part to the launch of Web Services World, a special
 concurrent conference dedicated to the new Universal Description, Discovery
 and Integration (UDDI) project.
     Occurring April 10-11, Web Services World has grabbed the attention of
 industry leaders Ariba, Bowstreet, Epicentric, IBM, Microsoft, and Sun
 Microsystems, who are among the top exhibitors and sponsors.  The
 participation of these premier corporations validates SD 2001 as the
 must-attend event in the software development arena.  Other exhibiting
 companies of Web Services World include BEA Systems, Hewlett-Packard,
 HotDispatch, ILOG, NQL Inc., Patkai Networks, Tradia and Web Putty.  Software
 development media outlets such as Dr. Dobbs Journal, Intelligent Enterprise,
 MSDN Magazine, Software Development Magazine and UDDI.org, are among the
 sponsors of the event.
     Leading executives Simon Phipps, chief software evangelist at Sun
 Microsystems, Rod Smith, vice president of emerging technologies at IBM
 Corporation, Nick Solinger, Ariba's director of product marketing, Dan'l
 Lewin, VP .NET business development at Microsoft and Andy Roberts, VP and CTO
 of Bowstreet, chose the Web Services World conference as the forum to address
 their peers and discuss crucial topics currently facing developers involved in
 the UDDI initiative.  Complementing its keynote addresses and panels, WSW is
 offering more than 20 educational sessions focusing on topics such as XML,
 SOAP, WSDL, and RDF.
     "By providing a content-rich Web Services World conference aligned with
 the dynamics of the rapidly growing UDDI initiative, SD 2001 has become a
 magnet for software development visionaries," said Mike Gottlieb, SD 2001 show
 director.  "The addition of Web Services World, our high-level exhibitor base
 and keynote speakers has helped attract an anticipated 6,000 attendees from
 across the software development spectrum.
     SD 2001 has truly become the best industry educational forum and a
 top-notch networking venue for development professionals and industry analysts
 alike."
     With a 30% larger expo floor and a record number of expected attendees,
 SD 2001 and Web Services World have confirmed their position as the most
 progressive and comprehensive educational and networking opportunity for
 software development professionals.  Combined, the concurrent conferences
 total more than 100 exhibitors and 23 media sponsors.
