Explore the ontologies developed and used by SOA4All.
- SOA4All Functional Classifications ontology. It consists of two parts: the first one is a formal specification of the NEXOF-RA functional view, while the second one contains SOA4All extensions that cover the functionalities that are specific to platform services.
- SOA4All Execution ontology. It is a set of ontologies representing concepts for annotating SOA4All Web services.
- SOA4All Auditing Logs ontology. It formalizes the relevant actions performed by the users within the Consumption Platform. The logs expressed in this schema are collected by Logging/Auditing service and then used by the Recommender System component to produce service recommendations.
- Context dimension framework. The framework implements D3.4.7 providing an RDFS encoding of the dimension ontology and the minimal extension to a service model to register contextual sensitivity in terms of dimensions. This is accompanied by a generic domain ontology developed on the basis of SOA4All's use cases requirements.
- SOA4All eGovernment Ontologies. The eGovernment Use Case provides a set of ontologies that describes functional classification and I/O types concepts that are used to annotate eGovernment Web Services.
- Web Service Modeling Ontology (WSMO) and specification
- WSMO-Lite - builds on WSDL and SAWSDL, annotating Web service descriptions with semantics, intended for automation of tasks such as Web service discovery, composition, ranking and invocation. The main part of WSMO-Lite is a distinction of four kinds of service semantics - functional, nonfunctional, behavioral and information model. WSMO-Lite provides a set of RDFS classes for marking these types of semantics, as concrete semantic descriptions are attached to a WSDL file. Additionally, WSMO-Lite contains a minimal RDFS model of Web services (extracting the services, their operations and input/output messages from the WSDL), which serves as the basis for a registry of WSMO-Lite semantic Web service descriptions.
- MicroWSMO and hRESTS are two microformats for machine-readable semantic descriptions of RESTful Web services - hRESTS is a microformat that introduces WSDL-like achine-readable structure in the HTML documentation of a service, on top of which MicroWSMO adds SAWSDL-like annotation properties. Both RESTS and MicroWSMO can be interpreted in the WSMO-Lite minimal RDFS model of Web services. hRESTS and MicroWSMO constitute the basis for applying WSMO-Lite semantics to RESTful services. In SOA4All, RESTful and WSDL-based services are treated as equals.
Browse the "Ontology Yellow Pages" - URIs of ontologies developed in European research projects provide by the Semantic Technology and Ontologies Technical Group of the EC Software and Service Architectures unit focusing on Internet of Services collaboration activities. SOA4All co-organized the Internet of Services Collaboration meeting that took place in Brussels, Belgium, on 10-11 June 2009. More info.
