Abstract

The widespread adoption of XML standards has prompted an intense activity to address Web services research issues. The ability to efficiently access and share Web services is a critical step towards the full deployment of the new on-line economy. In this paper, we present a new query paradigm over Web services. Queries are resolved by combining the invocations of several Web service operations. A three- level query scheme allows the expression of database-like queries and their transformation into service execution plans bearing on actual Web service operations. We also introduce a hierarchical matching process between operations allowing the expansion of the solution space to similar and partial answers.
