Generating OWL-S Families by Utilizing Business Process Definitions and Feature Models

Umut Orhan, Ali H. Dogru

Abstract

This research introduces automated transition from domain models and process specifications to semantic web service descriptions in the form of service ontologies. Also, automated verification and correction of domain models are enabled. The proposed approach is based on Feature-Oriented Domain Analysis (FODA), Semantic Web technologies, and ebXML Business Process Specification Schema (ebBP). This approach is proposed to address the needs for achieving productivity gains, maintainability and better alignment of business requirements with technical capabilities in the engineering of service oriented applications and systems.
