Semantic Web Enabled Web Services


Web services promise a new level of service on top of current web. However, in order to employ their full potential, appropriate description means for web services need to be developed. Current technology around UDDI, WSDL, and SOAP provide limited support in mechanizing service recognition, service configuration and combination, service comparison and automated negotiation. Therefore, the main objectives of SWWS are:

  • Provide a comprehensive Web Service description framework.
  • Define a Web Service discovery framework.
  • Provide a scalable Web Service mediation.

In order to evaluate the overall approach, SWWS will provide a Semantic Web based Web Service platform which will service as a basis for three case studies, one in the B2C area and two in the B2B area, that cover a wide range of potential further EBusiness applications.
