The OpenDiscovery project is an open source implementation of various building blocks to enable Distributed Business Service Discovery.

The central OpenDiscovery components are the Resolver and the Business Publisher, while the first "visible" end user component is the Business Investigator browser extension. Repositories for all components are available on Github and are open for collaboration with respect to business issues as well as technical issues.
