The W3C has acknowledged WSMO-Lite, a lightweight set of terms for describing the semantics of Web services that builds on the standard SAWSDL. According to the W3C's own Team comment, WSMO-Lite "is a useful addition to SAWSDL for annotations of existing services and the combination of both techniques can certainly be applied to a large number of semantic Web services use cases."
So now, if you were interested in what SAWSDL could be useful for, here's an answer. We are using WSMO-Lite for semantic Web services automation in the project SOA4All, and especially in the SWS registry iServe.
We also apply WSMO-Lite to RESTful Web services - through the microformat hRESTS we structure the HTML documentation that every RESTful API has, and then it's easy to add SAWSDL/WSMO-Lite annotations.
So that's what's been keeping me busy.Posted at 1318 on Tue, Sep 21, 2010 in category Links, Work | TrackBack | Comments feed
