Guidelines and Tool for Meaningful OWL-S Services Annotations

Abstract

The current tools to create OWL-S annotations have been designed starting from the knowledge engineer's point of view. Unfortunately, the formalisms underlying Semantic Web languages are often incomprehensible to the developers of Web services. To bridge this gap, it is desirable that developers are provided with suitable tools that do not necessarily require knowledge of these languages in order to create annotations on Web services. With reference to some characteristics of the involved technologies, this work addresses these issues, proposing guidelines that can improve the annotation activity of Web service developers. Following these guidelines, we also designed a tool that allows a Web service developer to annotate Web services without requiring him to have a deep knowledge of Semantic Web languages. A prototype of such a tool is presented and discussed in this paper.
