Complex services may be dynamically composed through combining distributed components on demand (i.e., when requested by a user) in order to provide new services without preinstallation. Several systems have been proposed to dynamically compose services. However, they require users to request services in a manner that is not intuitive to the users. In order to allow a user to request a service in an intuitive form (e.g., using a natural language), this paper proposes a semantics-based service composition architecture. The proposed architecture obtains the semantics of the service requested in an intuitive form, and dynamically composes the requested service based on the semantics of the service. To compose a service based on its semantics, the proposed architecture supports semantic representation of components [through a component model named Component Service Model with Semantics (CoSMoS)], discovers components required to compose a service [through a middleware named Component Runtime Environment (CoRE)], and composes the requested service based on its semantics and the semantics of the discovered components [through a service composition mechanism named Semantic Graph-Based Service Composition (SeGSeC)]. This paper presents the design, implementation and empirical evaluation of the proposed architecture.
