Web Service Search

A web service is a network accessible interface to application functionality, built using standard Internet technologies. The features that web services are published through UDDI registration nodes; that web services have standard description documents, WSDL documents; and that each web service is made up of particular operations, and each operation has particular input and output parameters, distinguish web service search from other web contents search. Therefore, instead of crawling the web for web services, we obtain web services from UDDI registration nodes, and focus on (1) extracting the semantic meaning of web services based on WSDL descriptions; (2) performing composition of web services to form a web service repository; and (3) presenting the users a search interface that exposes the semantic relationship of web services to the largest extend.
