The Semantics of Web Services: An Examination in GIScience Applications

Xuan Shi
2013 ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information  
Further, this paper proposes that the semantics of web service are neutral and independent from the service interface definition, data types and platform.  ...  This paper examines the distinction and relationship between the syntactic and semantic definitions for web services that characterize different purposes in service computation.  ...  Prior works on service publication and discovery failed, such as UDDI, because the designers had no awareness about the distinction and relationship between the service semantics and the IOPEs definitions  ...

Service Composition with Directories [chapter]

Ion Constantinescu, Walter Binder, Boi Faltings
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This algorithm is refined in two steps, first to exploit type information, and second to support partial type matches.  ...  An evaluation confirms that the algorithms scale well with increasing size of the directory and that the support for partial type matches is essential to achieve a low failure rate. 1  ...  Another approach is that of Thakkar and Knoblock [26] , concretized by the Building Finder application, where a number of manually defined data-sources, such as the Microsoft Terraservice, U.S.  ...
