RE: What are web services ?
It will be interesting to see what the characteristics equivalent to standard certification/QoS processes for web service developers will be (eg., Software Capability Maturity Model), how one will report bugs, provide Change Requests, and so on. If software agents are dynamically composing services, how do they note that, who do they report it to (other bots?), how do they follow up, and so on. It seems that a lot of necessary legal infrastructure is being bypassed, or that this stuff is too experimental to warrant it. In either case, one questions the maturity if not the sophistication both present and needed. There are a lot questionable procurement issues here. len From: Ken North [mailto:kennorth@s...] There's been work on more sophisticated solutions -- for example, semantic web services based on an ontology language (OWL-S or WSMO). There's more information in "Developing Semantic Web Services" by Peter Alesso. Here's an excerpt: http://www.webservicessummit.com/Excerpts/BuildingSemanticWS.htm
