Abstract

Several solutions exist for semantically describing Web Services (WSs) from the perspective of orchestration but little is known about how semantics benefit WS choreography. The most extreme example of a choreography problem occurs in peer-to-peer systems where shared semantics of data may need to be established via services interactions. We present a solution to this problem by sharing micro-data via interaction models. No pre-unified ontology is required in our approach so peers can make use of existing heterogeneous resources having been described in the RDF data model flexibly and compatibly. The experimental results indicate that our approach semantically enhances WS choreography in a lightweight way which complies with principles of Linked Data and republished Interaction Models (IMs) can further facilitate the progress of the Web of data as well as the formation of peer communities generated through peers' interactions.
