EWP Registry Client
Java implementation of an EWP Registry Service client.
When you're implementing a client, it allows you to discover institutions in the network, and APIs implemented by them.
When you're implementing a server, it allows to verify incoming requests (prove that they come from within the EWP Network, and prove which institutions the requester covers).
Of course, you are not required to use this client - you can also make use of the Registry API directly. You can also learn more on EWP's architecture here, and get information on all other related tools and specifications here.

Upgrading? Check out the changelog (release notes).
We use semantic versioning (
MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH) for our
release version numbers.
Major version is incremented when our changes are likely to break your builds or runtime behavior.
Minor version is incremented when new features are added. (Note, that such changes still can break your builds, if you have custom implementations of the
Patch version is incremented on bug fixes, documentation updates, etc.
