In this paper we describe a framework for exploiting the semantics of Web services through UDDI registries. As a part of this framework, we extend the DAML-S upper ontology to describe the functionality we find essential for e-businesses. This functionality includes relating the services with electronic catalogs, describing the complementary services and finding services according to the properties of products or services. Once the semantics is defined, there is a need for a mechanism in the service registry to relate it with the service advertised. The ontology model developed is general enough to be used with any service registry. However when it comes to relating the semantics with services advertised, the capabilities provided by the registry effects how this is achieved. We demonstrate how to integrate the described service semantics to UDDI registries.


Verifiable web services with hierarchical interfaces
Betin Can, Aysu (2005-07-15)
We propose an Hierarchical State Machine (HSM) model for specifying behavioral interfaces of peers participating in a composite web service. We integrate the HSM model to a design pattern which is supported by a modular verification technique that can 1) statically analyze the properties about global interactions of a composite web service and 2) check the conformance of the Java implementations of the participant peers to their interfaces. We extend the synchronizability analysis to HSMs to efficiently ide...
A monolithic approach to automated composition of semantic web services with the Event Calculus
Okutan, Cagla; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan (Elsevier BV, 2010-07-01)
In this paper, a web service composition and execution framework is presented for semantically -annotated web services. A monolithic approach to automated web service composition and execution problem is chosen, which provides some benefits by separating composition and execution phases. An AI planning method using a logical formalism, namely Abductive Event Calculus, is chosen for the composition phase. This formalism allows one to generate a narrative of actions and temporal orderings using abductive plan...
A workflow-based web service composition system
Karakoc, E.; Kardas, K.; Karagöz, Pınar (2006-12-22)
In this work, we present a web service composition system that provides an environment for specifying the now model of the composite service and the user's constraints on the composite service. We adopt our previous work on workflow modeling and scheduling under resource allocation constraints for web service composition and extend it with service discovery functionalities. In modeling the composite service, the system guides the user for selecting the relevant service types. In both guiding functionality a...

A novel extension to proposal-based detection is proposed in order to learn convolutional context features for determining boundaries of objects better. Objects and their context are aimed to be learned through parallel convolutional stages. The resulting object and context feature maps are combined in such a way that they preserve their spatial relationship. The proposed algorithm is trained and evaluated on PASCAL VOC 2007 detection benchmark dataset and yielded improvements in performance over baseline, ...
Providing scalability for an automated web service composition framework
Kaya, Ertay; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, some enhancements to an existing automatic web service composition and execution system are described which provide a practical significance to the existing framework with scalability, i.e. the ability to operate on large service sets in reasonable time. In addition, the service storage mechanism utilized in the enhanced system presents an effective method to maintain large service sets. The described enhanced system provides scalability by implementing a pre-processing phase that extracts s...
