Semantic processes for constructing composite web services

Kardaş, Karani
In Web service composition, service discovery and combining suitable services through determination of interoperability among different services are important operations. Utilizing semantics improves the quality and facilitates automation of these operations. There are several previous approaches for semantic service discovery and service matching. In this work, we exploit and extend these semantic approaches in order to make Web service composition process more facilitated, less error prone and more automated. This work includes a service discovery and service interoperability checking technique which extends the previous semantic matching approaches. In addition to this, as a guidance system for the user, a new semantic domain model is proposed that captures semantic relations between concepts in various ontologies.


Semantically enriched web service composition in mobile environments
Ertürkmen, K. Alpay; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Information Systems (2003)
Web Services are self-contained, self-describing, modular applications that can be published, located, and invoked through XML artefacts across the Web. Web services technologies can be applied to many kinds of applications, where they offer considerable advantages compared to the old world of product-specific APIs, platform-specific coding, and other أbrittleؤ technology restrictions. Currently there are millions of web services available on the web due to the increase in e-commerce business volume. Web se...
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...
Mobility and power aware data interest based data replication for mobile ad hoc networks
Arslan, Seçil; Bozyiğit, Müslim; Department of Computer Engineering (2007)
One of the challenging issues for mobile ad hoc network (MANET) applications is data replication. Unreliable wireless communication, mobility of network participators and limited resource capacities of mobile devices make conventional replication techniques useless for MANETs. Frequent network divisions and unexpected disconnections should be handled. In this thesis work, a novel mobility and power aware, data interest based data replication strategy is presented. Main objective is to improve data accessibi...
Semantic enrichment for the automated customization and interoperability of ubl schemas
Yarımağan, Yalın; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2008)
Universal Business Language (UBL) is an initiative to develop common business document schemas to provide standardization in the electronic business domain. However, businesses operate in different industry, geopolitical, and regulatory contexts and consequently they have different rules and requirements for the information they exchange. In this thesis, we provide semantic enrichment mechanisms for UBL that (i) allow automated customization of document schemas in response to contextual needs and (ii) maint...
Software subcontracting success: a case study on the relationship betweeen project success and process metrics
Yücetürk, Kerem; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Information Systems (2005)
While software subcontracting is a common business transaction in the information technology field, metrics specifically aimed at effectiveness of software subcontracting arrangements are not commonly available. This thesis makes a review of the literature and derives such metrics from fields of software quality, COTS acquisition and IS success. A case study is performed on software subcontracting projects of a Turkish defense contractor, and the project metrics are compared according to their success. The ...
