The ultimate goal of the envisioned Semantic Web is to transform the Web into a medium through which data and applications can be automatically understood and processed. A major component in enabling the Semantic Web is the concept of Web services. That calls for the design and development of a comprehensive Web Service Management System (WSMS), where Web services would be treated as first-class objects that can be manipulated as if they were pieces of data. In this paper, we present a comprehensive WSMS for e-government called WebSenior. Web Services are used ubiquitously across all the layers of the system. WebSenior helps senior citizens and their helpers use theWeb to request and receive e-government services.
