Semantic Description of Web Services

Thabet Slimani

The tasks of semantic web service (discovery, selection, composition, and execution) are supposed to enable seamless interoperation between systems, whereby human intervention is kept at a minimum. In the field of Web service description research, the exploitation of descriptions of services through semantics is a better support for the life-cycle of Web services. The large number of developed ontologies, languages of representations, and integrated frameworks supporting the discovery, composition and invocation of services is a good indicator that research in the field of Semantic Web Services (SWS) has been considerably active. We provide in this paper a detailed classification of the approaches and solutions, indicating their core characteristics and objectives required and provide indicators for the interested reader to follow up further insights and details about these solutions and related software.

Keywords: SWS, SWS description, top-down approaches, bottom-up approaches, RESTful services.
