A Directory of Heterogeneous Services
This paper presents a directory of heterogeneous web services, which addresses the issue of service discovery involving heterogeneous description languages such as OWL-S, SAWSDL, WSDL and plain text. Service descriptions are mapped into a unified description model, which captures various important elements in different service description approaches. Our directory then performs service registration, automatic discovery and manual browsing utilizing these unified models. A preliminary evaluation shows a satisfying result.
