This may be interesting here. (I guess some people have got it from other
lists - sorry. I suspect others haven't).

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to anounce the first release of ODE-SWS, a Semantic
Web Service development environment, which has been developed in
the context of the EU project Esperonto (IST-2001-34372)
<http://www.esperonto.net>. ODE SWS can be downloaded from
<http://kw.dia.fi.upm.es/odesws> and its main features are:

* Semantic Web Services are graphically developed. To design a
service, the user does not need to know the specific details of
the semantic markup language used to represent the service.
ODE-SWS provides a graphical interface, called SWSDesigner, which
allows specifying all the features of the services in a graphical
way (drawing the services).

* The description of the Semantic Web Service is based on the
Problem Solving Method approach. Following this approach, the
functional features of a service are described as tasks, while
the internal structure of the services are modelled as the
methods that solve those tasks.

* Semantic Web Services can be exported to OWL-S and WSDL. Once
the service has been graphically developed, ODE SWS generates
automatically its OWL-S and WSDL representation.

* ODE SWS can use ontologies represented in OWL and RDF(S) and
ontologies available in any instance of the WebODE ontology
workbench (e.g., the one available at <http://webode.dia.fi.upm.es/>).
In addition, the input/output parameters of the services developed with
ODE-SWS can belong to multiple ontologies.

ODE-SWS has been the result of a collaboration effort between the
the Ontological Engineering Group at Universidad Politecnica de
Madrid and the Intelligent Systems Group at Universidad de Santiago de Compostela.
For any doubt about ODE-SWS do not hesitate to contact us
at rgonza@fi.upm.es.

Best regards,
