Abstract (EN)The capability to easily find useful services (software applications, software components, scientific computations) becomes increasingly critical in several fields. Current approaches for services retrieval are mostly limited to the matching of their inputs/outputs possibly enhanced with some ontological knowledge. Recent works have demonstrated that this approach is not sufficient to discover relevant components. Motivated by these concerns, we have developed BeMatch platform for ranking web services based on behavior matchmaking. We developed matching techniques that operate on behavior models and allow delivery of partial matches and evaluation of semantic distance between these matches and user requirements. Consequently, even if a service satisfying exactly the user requirements does not exist, the most similar ones will be retrieved and proposed for reuse by extension or modification. We exemplify our approach for behavioral services matchmaking by describing two demonstration scenarios for matchmaking BPEL and WSCL protocols, respectively. A demo scenario is also described concerning the tool for evaluating the effectiveness of the behavioral matchmaking method.
