Hi,

According to the comments in the Profile ontology, Isn't the correct way to
define a Service Profile to use service:OfferedService or
service:NeededService, rather than just service:ServiceProfile?

Whilst looking at the attributes available for profiles, I have become
confused as to what the cardinality of each one is (whether multiple
definitions of the same attribute can be used). For example:
isPresentedBy - can a profile be represented by multiple top-level services?
serviceType

Some attributes/parameters do have minCardinality restriction, but does the
ommitance of maxCardinality mean that there is no restriction?
Expanding this question to the whole DAML-S ontology, does a UML diagram (or
something similar) exist that describes in detail all the possible
relationships?

Many thanks,
Ed
