Using semantic information for distributed web service discovery

Cantürk, Deniz
Karagöz, Pınar
With the increase in number and size of service registries, web service discovery becomes a challenging activity. There is also tremendous increase in the number of web services that are not registered to any of the business registries. Under these conditions, finding an appropriate web service may lead to problems in terms of performance, efficiency, end-to-end security and quality of the discovered services. Use of semantic information has been studied in web service discovery for improving the accuracy of the service discovery task. However, semantic information can be useful for improving the time efficiency as well. In this work, we propose a web service discovery architecture that is based on a coordinated set of domain-specific service discoverers crawling both business registries and private sites. By distributed and domain-specific crawling, it is aimed to shorten the search time and to provide up-to-date service status and load balancing via scalability.

Semantic Annotation of Web Services with Lexicon-Based Alignment
Cantürk, Deniz; Karagöz, Pınar (2011-07-04)
As the number of available web services published in registries and on web sites increases, web service discovery becomes a challenging task. One solution to the problem is to use distributed web service search system composed of domain specific sub service discoverers. Using ontology is the most common practice to specify domain knowledge. However, an important problem at this point is the lack of semantic annotation for currently available web services. For this reason, there is a strong need for a mechan...

With the increase in the number of advertised web services, finding the web services appropriate for a given request will result in problems in terms of performance, efficiency and quality of the discovered services. In this paper, we introduce a distributed web service discovery system which consists of domain-specific subsystems. We establish ontology based domain specific web service discovery sub-systems in order to discover web services on private sites and in business registries, and in order to impro...
Query interface and query language for domain specific web service discovery system
Özdil, Hilal; Karagöz, Pınar; Department of Computer Engineering (2011)
As the number of the published web services increase, discovery of the web services with the desired functionality and quality is becoming a challenging process. Selecting the appropriate web services among the ones that o er the same functionality is also a challenging task. The web service repositories like UDDI (Universal Description Discovery and Integration) support only the syntactic searchs. Quality of service parameters for the published web services can not be queried over these repositories. We ha...
Automatic QoS evaluation method for web services
Aşkaroğlu, Emra; Karagöz, Pınar (2012-07-04)
In this work, we propose a new QoS evaluation method for web services. The proposed method aims to keep track of web services in terms of QoS parameters and to generate QoS values automatically when necessary. It is realized as a part of a Web service discovery system that is a collection of domain specific service discovery nodes.
Improved Genetic Algorithm based Approach for QoS Aware Web Service Composition
Yilmaz, A. Erdinc; Karagöz, Pınar (2014-07-02)
Use of web services is one of the most rapidly developing technologies. Since web services are defined by XML-based standards to overcome platform dependency, they are very eligible to integrate with each other in order to establish new services. This composition enables us to reuse existing services, which results in less cost and time consumption. One of the recent problems with web service composition is to maximize the overall Quality of Service (QoS) of the composed service. Most common elements of QoS...
