INFRAWEBS Designer – A Graphical Tool for Designing Semantic Web Services
In order to make accessible new Semantic Web Services technologies to the end users, the level of tools supporting these technologies should be significantly raised. The paper presents the architecture of such a tool – an INFRAWBS Designer – a graphical ontology-driven tool for creating a semantic Web service description according to WSMO Framework. The tool is oriented to the end users – providers of Web services, who would like to convert their services into WSMO based semantic Web services. The most character features of the tool – intensive use of ontologies, automatic generation of logical description of a semantic service from graphical models and the use of similarity-based reasoning for finding similar service descriptions to be reused as initial templates for designing new services are discussed.
