In the OWL-S coalition we have discussed and have some initial work in
ontologies of service profiles that could be published in an ontology
server.

Subject: Web service interface definition extension


Having thought about this for some time already, I was wondering if there is
any work in the SWS spec targetted towards sharing/re-using/extending
existing service interfaces? For example, building infrastructure into
development tools for discovering service interfaces (maybe from a purpose
built registry or from existing services) at design-time would be very
helpful in re-using/extending existing interfaces and thus reducing the
amount of dynamic semantic discovery needed across similar services. This
may be applied best inside a company and even extended to include discovery
of common object design for OO programming across different
groups/departments within one business.
