Thanks Abir

But where are we today on this issue and what are the opining topics / issues that need to be further researched.  I am very much interested in this matter and doing a lot of research.

Moreover, when we say "Ontology" does it mean a catalog of terms (classes ) and relationship among them?  DO we have today a full fledged ontology covering all terms for web services.

Thanks and awaiting your response

Dear Maqbool

I interpret your use of the term "recognition" - as identification and
composition (putting together pieces of services offered by different
semantic web resources), based on that...

The OWL-S initiative is attempting to define how a web service can be
described using OWL. Essentially, OWL-S is an ontology represented in OWL
that describes web services. This ontology focuses on three type of
knowledge about a service: a profile of the service, a process model that
describes how it works, and a description of how to invoke it.

A natural approach to automatic service composition is to view it as an AI
planning problem [Peer 02] [Hendler 99]. This is natural because a service
profile describes the inputs and outputs of services, which match with the
preconditions and effects of planning operators. McIlraith et. al. has
proposed an approach to composing web services using Golog T

In our work Lehigh we use HTN planning to compose Semantic Web services. To
avoid redundancy in service composition we use Local Closed World reasoning

Hope this helps.
