Improving performance of web services query matchmaking with automated knowledge acquisition. Web services are widely expected to simplify There is a critical need to design and develop tools the design of distributed applications that are amenable that abstract away the fundamental complexity of to automated discovery, composition, and invocation.

XML-based Web services specifications and toolkits, The use of XML [2] facilitates in moving towards and provide an elegant, intuitive, simple, and powerful loosely-coupled applications that provide greater query-based invocation system to end users. Web interoperability in distributed heterogeneous services based tools and standards have been designed environments.

However, the current XML-based to facilitate seamless integration and development for specifications provide only syntactical descriptions of application developers. As a result, current the functionality provided by Web services. Even implementations require the end user to have intimate though a wide variety of tools are available, the lack of knowledge of Web services and related toolkits, and semantics associated with Web service descriptions users often play an informed role in the overall Web requires user intervention in the decision making services execution process.

We employ a self-learning process. Though an important motivation of Web mechanism and a set of algorithms and optimizations services is to promote ease-of-use for application to match user queries with corresponding operations developers, the requirement that end users also be in Web services. Our system uses Semantic Web familiar with the design and some implementation concepts and Ontologies in the process of automating details makes its usage difficult for end users.

Our Web services matchmaking. We present performance work addresses this problem by simplifying the user analysis of our system and quantify the exact gains in interaction with Web services. We have developed precision and recall due to the knowledge acquisition several algorithms and optimization techniques that algorithms. Our system presents a simple Key Words: Web services, Matchmaking, Semantic interface to accept user queries, similar to HTML Web, Ontology, Information Extraction based search engines, and maps the queries to appropriate Web services operations.

We employ several query matching techniques including Semantic Web [3] and ontology technologies such as OWL [4], 1. Introduction as well as tools such as WordNet [5], to retrieve contextual information from queries and determine the The Web services model has emerged as a set of Web services operations relevant to the user standard for representation, discovery, and invocation query.

The details of Web services specification and of services in a distributed environment. A Web implementation are hidden from the user. For service can be defined as an interface to application example, suppose a user wants to check the weather for functionality that is accessible using well-known a trip from Boston to Chicago. In our system, the user Internet standards and is independent of any operating needs to enter the query "weather for travel from system or programming language.

The widespread Boston to Chicago. Our system takes consideration different senses of a particular word, we into consideration previous Web service matchmaking can ensure that the selected ontology domain has the results and utilizes them to improve performance for closest relevance to the client query string.

Our For synonym matching, four different search system supports memoized optimization, which uses outcomes are possible. In this words are present in any of the ontology models. We collect these outcomes, shown in Figure 2, and 2. Implementation Details use them to extend the ontology models, thus enriching the model. We have designed a learning module that Figure 1 shows the components and control flow of stores the knowledge and information of a previously our system.

A brief overview of the modules in the made query the semantics of which are not in our system is provided in our previous work [6]. If both the query word and its synonyms are not found, the ontology model does not get extended. The same condition applies when the query word and its synonyms are both found within the ontology model. However, the ontology file is extended when a synonym of a particular word yields a match.

If a synonym of the query word is present in the ontology file, we infer that the query word very likely has contextual relevance to the ontology model. Suppose we have a query "temperature at Binghamton" and we do not have the keyword "temperature" in our present ontology model. Further assume that from the Lexicon we can infer that "weather" is a synonym of temperature and "weather" is already present in the ontology model. It can then be inferred that "temperature" has a meaning that is semantically similar to "weather" and should be included in the ontology model.

So we regenerate the weather ontology model and incorporate the keyword "temperature" in the ontology file. Each time any of Figure 1. Overall architecture of the system the ontology models is updated, we create and read the new ontology model again so that the changes are 3. Automated Knowledge Acquisition incorporated. However, if a keyword from the user query string is present in the ontology model, every Within the Ontology Matcher module in our synonym of it does not qualify to be incorporated into system, the Lexicon block is used and its features are the ontology model.

For example, for the query string employed to obtain better contextual information "weather at Binghamton", instead of "temperature at relevant to the client query. Our system uses weather from Lexicon. Since "endure" is not present in JWNL 1. Predicate of each ontology statement. Irrespective of The self-learning mechanism, provided by our the matches found, we use the Lexicon block to system, utilizes the knowledge of previously made employ synonym matching techniques.

Figure 3 denotes the amount of time taken by each Figure 3. Execution time taken by each module within our system. The results are averaged component of the system across 50 queries of varying sizes, randomly selected from 4 domains: WSDL repository that are relevant to the query Qi. We define the contents execution time of the WSDL processor does not have a major impact on the performance of the system. In our experiment, we refer TQi block. It is used to find the synonyms, hyponyms, and to the WSDL operations returned by our system and hypernyms of client query words and the synsets2 for extending the ontology models.

Our analysis shows GQi to all relevant WSDL operations retrieved for that a major portion of the time is spent in loading the query Qi. We use the precision and recall measurements to study the accuracy of our system. Thus, in our experiment, the outputs. We define recall as the ratio of Table 1, Table 2, and Table 3 refer to the precision the number of relevant WSDL operations retrieved and and recall values across the different domains.

In Table 1, precision-recall results of the domain-independent methods Dictionary Matcher are not impressive as 2 A synset synonym set represents a concept and contains a set of semantics are not associated with keywords. The words; each of which is synonymous with the other words in the results in Table 1 quantify the upper limit of synset. In measure pertaining to the accuracy of the system. Table 2, we can see that both precision-recall values Without the Dictionary Matcher, both precision and are significantly higher.

Evaluation of the different methodologies. Weather Table 2. Performance of Domain Dependent Based on the results of this experiment, we can draw Ontologies. Domain Precision Recall a With the addition of elements and relations in Travel So both precision and recall increase. So both precision and recall remain Table 3. Performance of Combined unchanged. Domain Precision Recall Travel When the Avg Re call domain-dependent ontologies are not used, both precision and recall decrease, which indicates that the Ontology Matcher is vital to the accuracy of the Figure 5.

Experimental results demonstrate the viability elements and relations.

Figure 5 shows that with the of our approach in terms of simplicity, effectiveness, increase in recall, precision also increases. This and performance, facilitating in query-based search and performance improvement is due to the self-learning matchmaking of Web services.

The World Wide Web is changing. While once conceived of and implemented as a collection of static pages for browsing, it now promises to become a web of services--a dynamic aggregate of interactive, automated, and intelligent services that interoperate via the Internet. Multiple web services will interoperate to perform tasks, provide information, transact business, and generally take action for users, dynamically and on demand. Such prospects are especially important for the e-business community, providing opportunities for conducting business faster, more efficiently, and with greater ease than ever before. For instance, the opportunity to manage supply chains dynamically, to achieve market advantage, is expected to increase productivity and add value to products.

A Semantic Matchmaker for Ranking Web Services

Conceived and designed the experiments: Performed the experiments: Analyzed the data: Wrote the paper: KM MK. Supervised the research and coordinated the project: Helped in the sequence alignment and revised the manuscript: UltiMatch-NL applies two filters namely Signature-based and Description-based on different abstraction levels of a service profile to achieve more accurate results. More specifically, the proposed filters rely on semantic knowledge to extract the similarity between a given pair of service descriptions. Thus it is a further step towards fully automated Web service discovery via making this process more semantic-aware.
