OWL-Q for Semantic QoS-based Web Service Description and Discovery
Abstract. Semantic Web Services are emerging for their promise to produce a more accurate and precise Web Service discovery process. However, most of research approaches focus only on the functional part of semantic Web Service description. The above fact along with the proliferation of Web Services is highly probable to lead to a situation where Web Service registries will return many functionally-equivalent Web Service advertisements for each user request. This problem can be solved with the semantic description of QoS for Web Services. QoS is a set of non-functional properties encompassing performance and networkrelated characteristics of resources. So it can be used for distinguishing between functionally-equivalent Web Services. Current research approaches for QoS-based Web Service description are either syntactic or poor or non-extensible. To solve this problem, we have developed a rich and extensible ontological speciļ¬cation called OWL-Q for semantic QoSbased Web Service descr...
