An ontology-based Grid service discovery matchmaking framework

S Ludwig
2003 Future generations computer systems  
Especially for Service Discovery (SD), an ontology description is very useful in supporting a customized SD process.  ...  This paper proposes a SD matchmaking framework for GEs based on a welldefined ontology. The matching of service requests is discussed and a matchmaking mechanism is described in detail.  ...  The job submission is an atomic process identified by the &process attribute. In this section the SD matchmaking framework based on ontology knowledge was described.  ...

B2B Integration — Aligning ebXML and Ontology Approaches [chapter]

Birgit Hofreiter, Christian Huemer
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The framework uses an ontology based on ebXML corecomponents expressed in RDF to allow for bridging between different e-business vocabularies.  ...  The integration of the ontology-based approach into ebXML is realized in four major steps. In this paper we exactly identify the requirements and the architecture of each step.  ...  Summary In this paper we presented an ebXML core component-based ontology framework to be used in B2B e-commerce.  ...

Semantic SOA to Promote Integration of Heterogeneous B2B Services

Tomas Vitvar, Matthew Moran, Maciej Zaremba, Armin Haller, Paavo Kotinurmi
2007 The 9th IEEE International Conference on E-Commerce Technology and The 4th IEEE International Conference on Enterprise Computing, E-Commerce and E-Services (CEC-EEE 2007)  
Modeling the semantics of business services and their corresponding messages using ontologies enables flexible integration that is more adaptive to business-driven change.  ...  In this paper we demonstrate our approach building upon an established Semantic Web Service Framework (WSMX) to facilitate a conversation between heterogeneous services that support both the RosettaNet  ...  Based on the underlying technologies of Semantic Web services and B2B standards we describe the integration process within the (1) service creation phase and (2) service execution phase.  ...

WSMX: A Semantic Service Oriented Middleware for B2B Integration [chapter]

Thomas Haselwanter, Paavo Kotinurmi, Matthew Moran, Tomas Vitvar, Maciej Zaremba
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we present a B2B integration scenario building on the principles of Semantic Web services.  ...  For this scenario we show the benefits of semantic descriptions used within the integration process to enable conversation between systems with data and process mediation of services.  ...  We base our work on specifications of WSMO [5] , WSML [5] and WSMX [3] providing a conceptual framework, ontology language and execution environment for Semantic Web services.  ...

Mapping between heterogeneous XML and OWL transaction representations in B2B integration

Jorge Cardoso, Christoph Bussler
2011 Data & Knowledge Engineering  
This scenario poses an interesting challenge: "How to reconcile external XML-based standards and internal OWL-based representations in B2B integration scenarios?"  ...  XML-based standards have been widely used to enable and ease Business-to-Business (B2B) integration. Examples of standards include cXML, CIDX and ebXML.  ...  In such a context, one challenge for B2B integration is to find a solution to integrate external XML-based transactions with internal OWL ontology-based data representations.  ...

A Two-Layered Integration Approach for Product Information in B2B E-commerce [chapter]

Borys Omelayenko, Dieter Fensel
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we analyze the problems which occur during the integration, taking several leading XML-based standards as an example.  ...  We advocate a three-layer product integration framework to resolve the difficulties in overcoming these problems with a direct one-layer integration.  ...  It occurs very frequently in e-commerce and is an important part of any B2B mediation system.  ...

An Enterprise Application Integration Architecture Supporting Ontology Based Approach for B2B Collaboration

Razika Driouche, Zizette Boufaïda, Fabrice Kordon
2007 The International Journal of Interoperability in Business Information Systems  
This paper introduces an XML Schema management platform that promotes the use of matching techniques to fulfill the requirements of data integration and data exchange.  ...  Hence, PLASMA enables a semantic matching process followed by a visual mapping process to optimize the translation process between exchanged documents or integrated schema.  ...  This deficit is addressed by the proposed ontology-based framework for integration and evaluation of development results.  ...

Notice of Violation of IEEE Publication Principles Promoting B2B Integration with Semantic Web Service Technologies

Seyyed Ali Rokni Dezfouli, Jafar Habibi
2008 2008 Second Asia International Conference on Modelling & Simulation (AMS)  
We present a semantic B2B mediator based on the WSMX -a SWS execution environment, to tackle heterogeneities in B2B services.  ...  These frameworks only standardize structure of messages and aren't able to define semantics. It leads to slow and costly dynamic Business-to-Business (B2B) integration.  ...  It means that by a little change in method that presented in this paper, we can integrate other XML-based e-business frameworks.  ...

B³ - The Semantic B2B Broker

Jürgen Angele, Michael Erdmann
2001 International Conference on Wirtschaftsinformatik  
We will present an ontology-based approach to handle semantics, which enables application developers to raise the level of abstraction from errorprone syntactic manipulations to a conceptual level.  ...  This approach has been implemented in the B 3 set of tools that is able to integrate conceptual knowledge modeled in ontologies and factual knowledge originating from business applications and transactions  ...  When comparing an XML-based approach with an EDIFACT-based approach, one can easily identify a variety of advantages for XML: • XML is readable (and understandable) for non-experts, • XML is well integrated  ...

B2B or Not B2B? The future of B2B and the role of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises from SEE

Adrian Besimi, Zamir Dika
2013 Balkan Conference in Informatics  
B2B Frameworks as standards for communication cannot be fully implemented by SMES due to the cost, organizational or managerial decisions and other factors.  ...  The struggle of SMEs to enter the B2B marketplace is of a huge importance. Standardized communication should be seen as an asset rather than as a barrier.  ...  This approach is also supported in the paper "An Ontology-Based Product Recommender System for B2B Marketplaces" [6] where authors propose the Bayesian belief network combined with the ranking algorithm  ...
