Metrics details. The complexity and inter-related nature of biological data poses a difficult challenge for data and tool integration. There has been a proliferation of interoperability standards and projects over the past decade, none of which has been widely adopted by the bioinformatics community. Recent attempts have focused on the use of semantics to assist integration, and Semantic Web technologies are being welcomed by this community. SADI – Semantic Automated Discovery and Integration – is a lightweight set of fully standards-compliant Semantic Web service design patterns that simplify the publication of services of the type commonly found in bioinformatics and other scientific domains. In addition, we provide codebases that support these best-practices, and plug-in tools to popular developer and client software that dramatically simplify deployment of services by providers, and the discovery and utilization of those services by their consumers. SADI Services are fully compliant with, and utilize only foundational Web standards; are simple to create and maintain for service providers; and can be discovered and utilized in a very intuitive way by biologist end-users. In addition, the SADI design patterns significantly improve the ability of software to automatically discover appropriate services based on user-needs, and automatically chain these into complex analytical workflows. We show that, when resources are exposed through SADI, data compliant with a given ontological model can be automatically gathered, or generated, from these distributed, non-coordinating resources – a behaviour we have not observed in any other Semantic system. Finally, we show that, using SADI, data dynamically generated from Web services can be explored in a manner very similar to data housed in static triple-stores, thus facilitating the intersection of Web services and Semantic Web technologies.
A Semantic Web Services Architecture
Representing the semantics of web services and utilising the described semantic knowledge to develop and use within intelligent applications is an active research domain. Automatic composition of web services and reconfiguration of composed web services are some of the likely functions the intelligent applications ought to be performing by exploiting the semantic descriptions of services.
The current approaches such as OWL-S requires generating or writing a huge volume of XML or similar code even to represent some trivial semantics. The semantics include inputs, outputs, preconditions and effects, however, the preconditions and effects are not rich enough to reason upon the activities that services are expected to perform in general.
Further a standard language or approach to define the semantic description of web services does not exist.
Semantic Web Service Ontology (SWSO)/SWSL is a web service ontology via the interfaces so as to support Web service composition and execution. Web service interface with semantic grounding onto some external domain purposely designed inference engine and ontology matchmaker (Tara Raafat et al,).

We show how the development and implementation of an explicit account of a shared understanding i. After motivating their need, we clarify just what ontologies are and what purposes they serve.
We outline a methodology for developing and evaluating ontologies, first discussing informal techniques, concerning such issues as scoping, handling ambiguity, reaching agreement and producing definitions. We then consider the benefits of and describe, a more formal approach. We re-visit the scoping phase, and discuss the role of formal languages and techniques in the specification, implementation and evaluation of ontologies. Finally, we review the state of the art and practice in this emerging field, considering various case studies, software tools for ontology development, key research issues and future prospects.

Semantic web service composition through a matchmaking of domain
Automated composition of Web services or the process of forming new value added Web services is one of the most promising challenges in the semantic Web service research area. Semantics is one of the key elements for the automated composition of Web services because such a process requires rich machine-understandable descriptions of services that can be shared. Semantics enables Web service to describe their capabilities and processes, nevertheless there is still some work to be done.
Indeed Web services described at functional level need a formal context to perform the automated composition of Web services. The suggested model i. The model supports a semantic context in order to find a correct, complete, consistent and optimal plan as a solution.

Prefiltering Strategy to Improve Performance of Semantic Web Service Discovery
Within the numerous and heterogeneous web services offered through different sources, automatic web services composition is the most convenient method for building complex business processes that permit invocation of multiple existing atomic services. The current solutions in functional web services composition lack autonomous queries of semantic matches within the parameters of web services, which are necessary in the composition of large-scale related services.
In this paper, we propose a graph-based Semantic Web Services composition system consisting of two subsystems: management time and run time. The management-time subsystem is responsible for dependency graph preparation in which a dependency graph of related services is generated automatically according to the proposed semantic matchmaking rules.
The proposed approach was applied to healthcare data integration in different health organizations and was evaluated according to two aspects: execution time measurement and correctness measurement.
In this paper we address security of semantic Web services that web service discovery, composition, and invocation. An Matchmaker enabling it to verify that the security require- rules and constraints to be defined over domain specific.
Recent advances in Web and information technologies with the increasing decentralization of organizational structures have resulted in massive amounts of information resources and domain-specific services in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The massive volume and diversity of information and services available have made it difficult to achieve seamless and interoperable e-Science for knowledge-intensive disciplines like TCM.
Therefore, information integration and service coordination are two major challenges in e-Science for TCM. We still lack sophisticated approaches to integrate scientific data and services for TCM e-Science. We present a comprehensive approach to build dynamic and extendable e-Science applications for knowledge-intensive disciplines like TCM based on semantic and knowledge-based techniques.
The semantic e-Science infrastructure for TCM supports large-scale database integration and service coordination in a virtual organization. We use domain ontologies to integrate TCM database resources and services in a semantic cyberspace and deliver a semantically superior experience including browsing, searching, querying and knowledge discovering to users. We have developed a collection of semantic-based toolkits to facilitate TCM scientists and researchers in information sharing and collaborative research.

As the spread of web services, the composition of web services becomes a hot topic on both the academia and IT domains. The composition also depends on non-functional descriptions QoS. In this paper, we present an approach of web services composition based on both semantic description and QoS. The proposed approach builds a network of web services by matchmaking the semantic concepts in OWL-S, using the outputs-inputs similarity between services.
Those composed assemblies will be ranked by the QoS that provided by the consumer and the suitable one will be sent back to the consumer. This approach takes the advantages from Pellete DL Reasoner, depth-first and forward chaining algorithms. A prototype and a study case are presented to illustrate the efficiency of our approach.

Semantic Web Service Composition through a Matchmaking of Domain Abstract: The automated composition of Web services is one of the most promising ideas and at the same time one of the most challenging research area for the taking off of service-oriented applications. It is widely recognised that one of the key elements for the automated composition of Web services is semantics, i. However Web services described at capability level need a formal context to perform the automated composition of Web services.
In this paper a TLB architecture three levels based architecture is presented to perform Web service composition. Moreover we introduce the composition process as a matchmaking of domains and solve the latter problem according to a formal model, i. Article :. DOI:

Service Oriented applications are becoming very popular due to ease of Web services Usage. One use of Web Services in computer applications is its automated Composition. Excess amount of work has been done for automated web service composition but still there is a space to fill out for particular requirements.

This document is based on a review of requirements gathered from a number of different environments to identify the scope and potential requirements for this Semantic Web Services architecture. SWSI started in the autumn of based on common interest of the researchers involved. This document describes abstract protocols for interactions between clients and Semantic Web Services and proposes other support services that may be needed in some contexts to fulfill the basic requirements of the proposed architecture.
Our goal is that this architecture provides a foundation that will support a variety of semantically enabled service deployments in a variety of current and future distributed environments, especially those building on the World Wide Web. We anticipate that the architecture will also indicate requirements for Semantic Web service description languages which are being designed by our sister committee, the SWSI Language Committee. Our approach to developing an architectural framework for Semantic Web Services is based on an identified set of roles and requirements for machine interpreted semantic descriptions in the deployment of Semantic Web Services to different distributed environments, addressed in our previously released Requirements Document.
This document summarizes and builds on the prior one by describing protocols between interacting entities or agents that can interpret and reason with these descriptions to achieve those required functions. We are focused specifically on capabilities that extend the potential range of web services in the direction of dynamic interoperability over extended life cycles, while at the same time addressing concerns about security, reliability, and flexible means of recovery from interpretation and execution problems that can occur in such open and evolving environments.
The SWSA interoperability architecture covers the following classes of support functions to be accomplished by Semantic Web agents service providers, requestors, and middle agents.

This paper describes and compares AI planning solutions to Web service automatic composition. Semantic Web allows data and services to be interpreted automatically by software agents, without ambiguity supported by service and domain ontologies. do this, the system uses planning and matchmaking techniques.
Discovery of semantic Web services is a heavyweight task when the number of Web services or the complexity of ontologies increases. In this paper, we present a new logical discovery framework based on semantic description of the capability of Web services and user goals using F-logic. Our framework tackles the scalability problem and improves discovery performance by adding two prefiltering stages to the discovery engine.
The first stage is based on ontology comparison of user request and Web service categories. In the second stage, yet more Web services are eliminated based upon a decomposition and analysis of concept and instance attributes used in Web service capabilities and the requested capabilities of the client, resulting in a much smaller pool of Web services that need to be matched against the client request. Semantic Web has been a popular topic of research since its introduction by Berners-Lee et al.
Based on this idea, automation of many tasks on the Internet is facilitated through the addition of machine understandable semantic information to Web resources. For instance, automatic discovery of Web services based on their functionality or composition of Web services which cannot fulfil the user requests individually becomes possible [ 2 ]. In recent years, complexity of conceptual models e. In order to deal with the problem of scalability, researchers proposed various methods, such as indexing and caching mechanism [ 6 ], preprocessing strategies before actual matching [ 7 , 8 ], and hybrid matchmakers that combine logic-based and non-logic-based reasoning [ 9 , 10 ].
This paper presents a new logical framework and two prefiltering strategies to improve the speed and accuracy of automated Web service discovery. Our discovery framework is based on the WSMO conceptual model for semantically describing user requests goals , Web services, and domain ontologies. During the discovery process, goal capability descriptions such as inputs, outputs, preconditions, and postconditions effects are compared with advertised Web service capability descriptions in order to determine whether they match or not.
Logical inference is utilized for matching, which guarantees that the capability requested by the goal is indeed satisfied by the capability of the Web service and also that the Web service has all it needs before it starts execution.
