MetadataShow full item record
WSDL-Workshop is a HTML5 web application for the discovery and exploration of web services and for analyzing the compatibility between web services. This is the result of a mathematical model developed from WSDL1.1. The program provides a graphical user interface and let the user build a work ow composed of services described with WSDL1.1 and tells if:
- An output is compatible with an input.
- It is correct to link an output with an input.
- It is correct to link a given operation after another.
- If many operations correctly linked together still make sense as a group.
In order to do that the WSDLs must have semantic annotations so the computer can recognize what is the purpose of certain data or operation. WSDLWorkshop uses the EDAM Ontology as a reference for semantic concepts.
In the discovery aspect; for a given set of WSDLs you can nd services by ltering by operation name, input or output names, or semantic annotations. For a given operation output it can also lter by WSDL which have inputs which are correct to link with that output. For a given operation it can also lter by operations which are correct to link after.
