As the number of available Web services increases there is a growing demand to realise complex business processes by combining and reusing available Web services. In this context, the Ontology Web Language for Services (OWL-S) can be used to specify semantic types of the input and output data of a Web service and its functionality.

The approach presented outlines the use of the OWL's XML presentation syntax to obtain Web services that provide reasoning support and easily deal with facts and rules. To validate the proposal, the research has focused on Clinical Practice Guidelines (GLs) related to the biomedical field. This paper highlights the benefits and drawbacks found when applying the approach to obtain Web services that are intended to be used in cli...
