The increasing availability of web services demands for a discovery mechanism to find services that satisfy our requirement. UDDI provides a web wide registry of web services, but its lack of an explicit capability representation and its syntax based search provided produces results that are coarse in nature. We propose to base the discovery mechanism on OWL-S. OWL-S allows us to semantically describe web services in terms of capabilities offered and to perform logic inference to match the capabilities requested with the capabilities offered. We propose OWL-S/UDDI matchmaker that combines the better of two technologies. We also implemented and analyzed its performance.
