If you want to do it programmatically:
	http://www.mindswap.org/2004/owl-s/api/

(More toys, including validators, etc.: 
http://www.mindswap.org/2004/owl-s/)

We had a "composer" tool which got a bit bitrotted. Work is

We will also have some sort of specific browsing/editing support in:
	http://www.mindswap.org/2004/SWOOP/
