TRANSLATING WEB SERVICES COMPOSITION PLANS TO OWL-S DESCRIPTIONS

Eva Ziaka, Dimitris Vrakas, Nick Bassiliades

Abstract

Web Services technology has led to simpler and more rapid development of Web Applications with improved functionality by which several platforms through the globe can communicate to exchange data and cooperate for problem solving. Methods for automated web services composition are studied so as to enhance this type of software development. Many studies focus on converting the composition problem to a planning problem and solving it using known planning algorithms. This paper suggests a method for translating the produced PDDL plans of the above algorithms to OWL-S descriptions of the final composite web services. The result is a totally new web service that can later be discovered and invoked or even take part in a new composition.
