Abstract

With the advent of Web 2.0, the use of RESTful web services is expected to overtake that of the traditional SOAP-based web services. Recently, the growing number of RESTful web services available on the web raises the challenging issue of how to locate the desired web services. However, the existing keyword searching method is insufficient for the bad recall and the bad precision. In this paper, we propose a novel building semantic ontology method which employs both the clustering technique based on association rules and the semantic analysis technique based on patterns. From this method, we can generate ontologies automatically, reduce the burden of semantic annotations, and support more efficient web services search. We ran our experiments on the subset of 168 RESTful web services downloaded from the PregrammableWeb site. The experimental results show that our method achieves up to 35% improvement for recall performance, and up to 18% for precision performance compared to the existing keyword searching method.
