With the rapid deployment of e-services, many workflow-like e-business process definition languages come into existence. At the same time, Ontology Web Language for Services (OWL-S) aims to build an ontology language to support the integration of various specifications. There has been some work on mapping WSDL (Web Services Description Language) to OWL-S to build a connection between the Web service and service profile. However, in the sense of activity relationships, there has been no effort

Therefore, we design and develop an innovative mapping tool to translate BPEL4WS (Business Process Execution Language for Web Services) to OWL-S. Through this mapping, semantics in the traditional business process specifications can be enriched significantly to enable more flexible and automatic e-service functions by using existing OWL-S tools such as composition and discovery, especially the execution of workflow-based services.
