5 5 Static Dynamic Bringing the computer back as a device for computation Semantic Web enabled Web Services URI, HTML, HTTPRDF, RDF(S), OWL WWW Semantic Web UDDI, WSDL, SOAP Web Services The Vision

7 7 Vision & Truth Def 1. Software Architecture Def 2. New concept for eWork and eCommerce Def 3. New programming technology Semantic Web enabled Web Services

8 8 Def 1. Web Services as a Software Architecture Web services are a new breed of Web application. They are self-contained, self-describing, modular applications that can be published, located, and invoked across the Web. Web services perform functions, which can be anything from simple requests to complicated business processes. … Once a Web service is deployed, other applications (and other Web services) can discover and invoke the deployed service. IBM web service tutorial Semantic Web enabled Web Services The Vision

9 9 Web Services connect computers and devices with each other using the Internet to exchange data and combine data in new ways. The key to Web Services is on-the-fly software creation through the use of loosely coupled, reusable software components. Software can be delivered and paid for as fluid streams of services as opposed to packaged products. Semantic Web enabled Web Services The Vision

10 10 Def 2. Web Services as a new Concept for eWork and eCommerce Web Services, are Services accessible via the web Dieter Fensel, private definition Semantic Web enabled Web Services The Vision

11 11 Business services can be completely decentralized and distributed over the Internet and accessed by a wide variety of communications devices. The internet will become a global common platform where organizations and individuals communicate among each other to carry out various commercial activities and to provide value-added services. The dynamic enterprise and dynamic value chains become achievable and may be even mandatory for competitive advantage. Semantic Web enabled Web Services The Vision

12 12 Large companies shrink around their core competencies. Vica versa, virutal enterprises are set up on the fly reflecting current marketr needs. eWork and eCommerce will be the two sides of the same coin. Semantic Web enabled Web Services The Vision

13 13 Def 3. Web Services as a programming technology Web Services are Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) over HTTP current state of the art Semantic Web enabled Web Services The Vision

14 14 2 State of the Art The web is organized around URIs, HTML, and HTTP. URIs provide defined ids to refer to elements on the web, HTML provides a standardized way to describe document structures (allowing browsers to render information for the human reader), and HTTP defines a protocol to retrieve information from the web. ==> Not surprisingly, web services require a similar infrastructure around UDDI, WSDL, and SOAP. Semantic Web enabled Web Services

15 15 State of the Art Semantic Web enabled Web Services URI HTMLHTTP UDDI WSDLSOAP

16 16 State of the Art UDDI, WSDL, and SOAP are important steps into the direction of a web populated by services. However, they only address part of the overall stack that needs to be available in order to achieve the above vision eventually. There are many layer requires to achieve automatic web service discovery, selection, mediation and composition into complex services. Semantic Web enabled Web Services

19 19 State of the Art Web services can be accessed and executed via the web. However, all these service descriptions are based on semi-formal natural language descriptions. Therefore, the human programmer need be kept in the loop and scalability as well as economy of web services are limited. Semantic Web enabled Web Services

20 20 State of the Art There are important steps to take to bring web services and fully enabled E-commerce to reality. Bringing E-commerce to its full potential requires a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) approach. Anybody must be able to trade and negotiate with everybody else. However, such an open and flexible E-commerce has to deal with many obstacles before it becomes reality! The issue is scalability and economy in price. Semantic Web enabled Web Services

21 21 State of the Art We identify the following elements necessary to enable efficient inter-enterprise execution: –Mechanized process description and advertisement; –Mechanized discovery of services; –Mechanized selection of services; –Mechanized composition of services; –and mechanizde delivery, monitoring and contract negotiation. Without mechanization of these processes, internet- based E-commerce will not be able to provide its full potential in economic extensions of trading relationships. Semantic Web enabled Web Services

22 22 State of the Art Semantic Web enabled Web Services Making WS a mature technology by adding additional layers of funtionality Making WS a (1) mature, (2) scalable, and (3) cost effective technology. Making WS a automized technology by adding semantic web technology

23 23 A new IST project will start in August 2002 on Semantic Web enabled Web Services (SWWS) in line with the mentioned ideas. Partners are: Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, NL (coordinator) FZI Karlsruhe, Germany Hewlett-Packard, UK iSOCO, Spain Ontotext, Bulgaria Oracle, U.S.A. Semantic Web enabled Web Services 3. SWWS

24 24 SWWS Over 60 industrial in the advisory board:. Semantic Web enabled Web Services

25 25 1st SWWS meeting: Sardinia, Italy, Friday, June 14, Jointly with the 1st International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) and Ontoweb. Semantic Web enabled Web Services SWWS

26 26 The main objectives of SWWS are: Provide a comprehensive Web Service description framework. Define a Web Service discovery framework. Provide a scalable Web Service mediation. Semantic Web enabled Web Services SWWS

27 27 Fully enabled E-commerce based on workable web services requires a modeling framework that is centered around two complementary principles: –Strong de-coupling of the various components that realize an Ecommerce application. This de-coupling includes information hiding based on the difference of internal business intelligence and public message exchange protocol interface descriptions. –Strong mediation service enabling anybody to speak with everybody in a scalable manner. This mediation service includes the mediation of different terminologies as well as the mediation of different interaction styles. Semantic Web enabled Web Services The Web Service Modeling Framework (WSMF)

28 28 The WSMF consists of four main different elements: –ontologies that provide the terminology used by other elements; –goal repositories that define the problems that should be solved by web services; –web services descriptions that define various aspects of a web service; –and mediators which bypass interoperability problems. ontologiesmediators web services repositories The Web Service Modeling Framework (WSMF)

29 29 Service and process definition is based on the modelling language WSMF with semantic capabilities. Service discovery using these semantic descriptions is the first step towards the composition/orchestration of services/processes to form a dynamic solution. The Service Discovery Framework describes the overall approach and architecture for semantic-driven discovery of services. Semantic Web enabled Web Services Service Discovery Framework

30 30 Focused Service Crawling Algorithm: Developing focused crawling techniques supporting the process of detecting services on the Web for a given set of preferences. Implementation of the Service Discovery Framework: The framework for Service Discovery is implemented, including algorithms for focused crawling. Semantic Web enabled Web Services Service Discovery Framework

31 31 The main objective is the construction of a highly dynamic mediation framework that allow an automatic and fast cooperation between corporations. This framework will consider semantic access to processes and data, extending the Web Service paradigm to include Semantic features and developing a Agent architecture over Web Services using the P2P nature of the Internet. Semantic Web enabled Web Services Mediation architecture

32 32 These paradigms extend the concept of Semantic Web from the use of static resources to the use of dynamic services. It accomplish the agent purposes, allowing the automatic orchestration, matching and composition of the represented processes and services. Semantic Web enabled Web Services Mediation architecture

33 33 Extension of basic financial aggregation services developed as commercial aggregators to a broader set of operations. A demonstration platform will be developed which will address the decomposition of (complex) e-services into discrete components (e.g. web services) and the practical implications of assembling these into a realisable system.
