Who Will Use It? (WAS RE: Transactional Integrity of Services
Just a nit ... "The Semantic Web is rapidly becoming a reality through the development of Semantic Web markup languages" I wonder if that is true. The web is a reality because of content at the endpoints, not the languages in which they are coded. Languages are just stuff. Content is the stuffing. I say this only because over and over again in the years I've worked with markup, I've seen these breathless announcements for markup languages only to watch them die because the owners of the content were not interested. It is similar to the problems of volunteer groups who attempt to create standards without the support of the industries that would use them. It isn't a chicken or egg problem either; it is a problem of who has the business and are they interested in opening it up. Often, they aren't. It isn't use cases but real users that make or break a language spec or a content standard. len From: Chiusano Joseph [mailto:chiusano_joseph@b...] You make great points regarding semantics. I would recommend that you track the progress of DAML-S , an emerging DAML+OIL ontology for Semantic Web Services. Quotes from : DAML-S is an emerging DAML+OIL ontology for Semantic Web Services. It is a collaborative effort between BBN Technologies, Carnegie Mellon University, Nokia Research Center, SRI International, Stanford University, and Yale University. The Semantic Web is rapidly becoming a reality through the development of Semantic Web markup languages such as DAML+OIL, and these markup languages enable the creation of arbitrary domain ontologies (such as DAML-S) that support the unambiguous description of Web content.
