Matching Request Profile and Service Profile for Semantic Web Service Discovery

Hui Peng, Zhongzhi Shi,Lirong Qiu

OWL-S Service Profile provides a way to describe services offered by providers and services needed by requesters.But some items in the Profile are not very suitable for describing a requester's demands while some important information about the requester himself such as his identity which may play important role in precondition match are not considered in the Service Profile.In this paper we define an OWL compatible Request Profile ontology especially for service requesters to describe their special properties and their expectation about a service.Then a match algorithm is proposed to match service request described in Request Profile with service advertise described in Service Profile.The experiment results show that the match algorithm is efficient.
