Hi all,

imagine you can found 2 services that have the input / output, but don't do
the same thing ... like this example : You have 2

input2 while the service B do input1 - input2. How a matching >algorithm can
make a difference between this 2 services (because they have the same
input/output) ?

Concerning this question and of course the Maximo's response, I've continued
with one doubt. Where exactly do I define this taxonomy in my Profile? Does
OWL-S propose as taxonomy the UNSPSC ? Can I create my own OWL file which
the service in located and specify in my Profile? Where and which is
effectively the relation between OWL and OWL-S in Profile files?  

Thanks in advance,
