RE: wsmo


WSMO is bettered compared with OWL-S -- and perhaps in conception, with SAWSDL. If you look at WSMO, it is not so much a language as an ontology(ies), and specifically addressing web services. Just as OWL-S is formalized/represented in OWL, WSMO is formalized/represented in WSML. So you are perhaps confusing content with the language the content is modeled in.

Has anyone had any chance to evaluate applications of wsmo as an alternative to owl?

I may have seen  wsmo in passing before, but its only when I was given the demo that I noticed
that its no .owl  but .wsmo file extension

could this be pointing to an alternative standard? any use there?
