SPARQL executable mappings

OWL-S Test Collection

MSM Test Collection


Semantic web services try to mitigate the limitations of (non-semantic) web services by enriching them with semantic annotations to improve their discovery and composition. Therefore, a semantic web service is described by means of an ontology; however, there are a variety of ontologies to describe these services, such as OWL-S, WSMO or MSM, and there is a need to integrate them. This integration may be implemented using ad-hoc and software-engineering techniques, which help reduce integration costs. In this article, we present a case study in which we integrate OWL-S and MSM ontologies by means of a software-engineering technique, which is an adaptation of a technique devised in the database context. Our main conclusion is that, thanks to this technique, integration costs are reduced more than 85% compared to using an ad-hoc, manual technique.
