Abstract

We argue that the automatic classification of web service interface descriptions into a predefined set of categories can considerably speed up the task of finding compatible web services. By doing so, we restrict computationally-expensive compatibility checking to systems within the same domain category. In this paper we show that this classification can be carried out by leveraging techniques derived from automatic document classification. In particular, we devise an approach that exploit the characteristics of web service interface descriptions to extract the features necessary for inferring the categorisation function. We further reports the results of experiments in categorising various web service interface descriptions using different classification algorithms.
