The Service Discovery view connects to the ECF Discovery providers. There are many Discovery Providers inside ECF and each of them is capable of discovering network services in different ways.
If you open the Discovery view, it will show the discovered services currently on the network. The Service Discovery view will update whenever a new service is discovered on the network.
If you select an item in the Discovery view the details of the selected item are displayed in the properties view. The Properties view is an Eclipse view which can also be opened from the "Show View" menu which we discussed earlier.
