Dear all,

I have a question which I get confused these days. If I have a 
process model defined in OWL-S which should be an abstraction of my 
service and some services in my repository. When I want to find the 
service that match with the IOPE that I have described in the service 
profile and process model, I think it should be possible that we 
locate the services directly from this repository (if my assumption 
here is correct, please let me know).

Then my main question is that, if the above assumption is true:

1)       I might find more than one services that satisfy my needs at 
a time in the registry repository. In this case, I might want to do 
some evaluation which one fits my needs best and then do I need to 
create the grounding part to bind the service model to a concrete 

2)       If I need to, then can I create it on the fly? Because it 
would be really beneficial to do so otherwise I think there is on 
meaning for doing service discovery. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Please let me know. Thank you very much in advance.


  I don't think this is the best place to send ths message - OWL-S is 
being developed by a group from the DARPA DAML project 
(http://www.daml.org) and is not a product of this working group. 
There is a W3C mailing list at www-ws@w3.org which is a good place to 
ask your question.
