Intelligent Broker - A Knowledge based Approach for Semantic Web Services Discovery

Mohamed El Kholy, Ahmed Elfatatry

Abstract

Ever since the introduction of the service oriented model of computing (SOA), service discovery has been the major research challenge in SOA. Service consumers usually prefer to express their requirements informally. Expressing requirements in such a way leads to difficulties in the matching procedure, and hence results in poor matching results. In this paper, we present the concept of multi-level search as a solution for matching informal expression of user requirements. In the suggested approach, intermediate brokers receive service requests and suggest suitable services that match the given requests. We present a mechanism by which an intelligent broker utilizes a knowledge based system to overcome the drawbacks of syntactic and semantic discovery. The intelligent broker receives informal user requirements and performs multi-level search. The search starts with key word search, then meaning search, and finally expert search. If the keyword search fails to produce a proper matching, then, the search progresses to the following levels: semantic, and then intelligent search. In this paper we argue that multi-level search could revive the dream of automatic service discovery and present a detailed model for implementation.
