DAML-S Process Model

Hi All

Some more questions regarding DAML-S.

I understand the use of the Profile and Grounding ontologies but not fully
that of the Process Model. The Profile and Grounding are obviously the
ontologies that an agent needs to look at for service description and use,
but the Process model describes how the service works. Why would this be
important for an agent? The provider agent’s task would be that of
communicating with a requester agent and if the write inputs are supplied
then the requester can utilize the web service.

On the industrial front looking at UDDI and WSDL, if I am not mistaken,
there is no need for this process model. I can only see a use for the
Process model if one wants to dynamically create the web service’s code
dynamically, by generating it from the model using some form of code
generator.

Am I missing something important…can someone shed some light in this
direction please?
Charlie
