Web services have gained popularity with increasing number of businesses available on web. Huge increase in the number of services available on web makes service discovery a difficult problem. The process of discovery has graduated from syntax based to semantic based search. And there has been a spurt of research in specification and discovery of web services. The research work can be broadly classified to the following categories (1) WSDL Input Output Match (2) WSDL Input Output Precondition & Effect (Capability based) Match (3) Function semantics based Matching.
