WSDL-S: lighter weight approach to semantic web services

August 15th, 2005

Researchers at the University of Georgia’s LSDIS Lab have developed WSDL-S as a lightweight approach for adding semantics to Web services. This is an alternative to other schemes, including OWL-S and WSMO.

They have also released Radient, an Eclipse plugin, that provides a UI for annotating existing WSDL documents into WSDL-S via an OWL Ontology. Radient uses Harry Chen’s Cobra Ontology Viewer plugin.
