Application of schema matching methods to semantic web service discovery

Karagöz, Funda
The Web turns out to be a collection of services that interoperate through the Internet. As the number of services increase, it is getting more and more diffucult for users to find, filter and integrate these services depending on their requirements. Automatic techniques are being developed to fulfill these tasks. The first step toward automatic composition is the discovery of services needed. UDDI which is one of the accepted web standards, provides a registry of web services. However representation capabilities of UDDI are insufficient to search for services on the basis of what they provide. Semantic web initiatives like OWL and OWL-S are promising for locating exact services based on their capabilities. In this thesis, a new semantic service discovery mechanism is implemented based on OWL-S service profiles. The service profiles of an advertisement and a request are matched based on OWL ontologies describing them. In contrast to previous work on the subject, the ontologies of the advertisement and the request are not assumed to be same. In case they are different, schema matching algorithms are applied. Schema matching algorithms find the mappings between the given schema models. A hybrid combination of semantic, syntactic and structural schema matching algorithms are applied to match ontologies


Application of binary PSO for public cloud resources allocation system of video on demand (VoD) services
Aygun, Betul; Günel Kılıç, Banu; ARICI, NURSAL; Coşar, Ahmet; Tuncsiper, Bedriye (Elsevier BV, 2020-01-01)
Video streaming, whether on demand or live, has become one of the most popular internet applications. However, financial investments required for it is a severe problem since it needs more real time storage, higher data transfer and a significant amount of computation than other kinds of multimedia data. To tackle this problem, cloud computing, offering services without investing in hardware or software, emerges as a preferred technology. However, there are a large number of cloud service providers and they...
A content boosted collaborative filtering approach for movie recommendation based on local & global similarity and missing data prediction
Özbal, Gözde; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
Recently, it has become more and more difficult for the existing web based systems to locate or retrieve any kind of relevant information, due to the rapid growth of the World Wide Web (WWW) in terms of the information space and the amount of the users in that space. However, in today's world, many systems and approaches make it possible for the users to be guided by the recommendations that they provide about new items such as articles, news, books, music, and movies. However, a lot of traditional recommen...
A study of Kangaroo Transaction model for mobile transaction management
Örenç, Zülfü; Coşar, Ahmet; Department of Information Systems (2004)
Wireless network technology has advanced to the point that it is possible to use Internet connectivity to perform job tasks while moving in a city. We simulate and experimentally evaluate Dunham̕s Kangaroo Transaction (KT) model, and a modified version of it. Our results show that the modified-KT model does not have much communication overhead (although more than the original KT model) and it is more resilient to failures of base stations.
Developing jxta applications for mobile devices and invoking web services deployed in jxta platform from mobile devices
Bahadır, Mesut; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2004)
Today, Peer-to-peer (P2P) computing and Web Services play an important role in networking and computing. P2P computing, that aims addressing all the resources in a network and sharing them, is an old paradigm that gains importance nowadays with the advent of popular file sharing and instant messaging applications. On the other hand, a Web service is a software system that has an interface allowing applications to interact with other applications through Internet or intranet. Providing methods for publishing...
Design and implementation of a privacy framework for web servicesin the travel domain
Erkanar, Mehmet; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
A web service is a collection of functions that are packaged as a single entity and published to the network for use by other programs. Web services are building blocks for creating open distributed systems, and allow companies and individuals to quickly and cheaply make their digital assets available worldwide. With considerable interoperability, privacy management becomes an inevitable concern of the web services. Companies and individuals should be able to restrict the information available about themsel...
