Combining SAWSDL, OWL-DL and UDDI for Semantically Enhanced Web Service Discovery
A paper written by Dimitrios Kourtesis and Iraklis Paraskakis. It was presented at the ESWC2008. It is about Web Service Discovery, Semantic Web Services, Semantic Annotations for WSDL (SAWSDL), Web Ontology Language (OWL) and Universal Description Discovery and Integration (UDDI)

UDDI registries are included as a standard offering within the product suite of any major SOA vendor, serving as the foundation for establishing design-time and run-time SOA governance. Despite the success of the UDDI specification and its rapid uptake by the industry, the capabilities of its offered service discovery facilities are rather limited. The lack of machine-understandable semantics in the technical specifications and classification schemes used for retrieving services, prevent UDDI registries from supporting fully automated and thus truly effective service discovery. This paper presents the implementation of a semantically-enhanced registry that builds on the UDDI specification and augments its service publication and discovery facilities to overcome the aforementioned limitations. The proposed solution combines the use of SAWSDL for creating semantically annotated descriptions of service interfaces and the use of OWL-DL for modelling service capabilities and for performing matchmaking via DL reasoning.
