    Summary form only given. 'Traditional' Web service technology like SOAP, WSDL in conjunction with UDDI are making their way into the mainstream distributed computing on an industrial scale. These traditional Web service technologies are based on XML and use the Internet at the underlying world-wide communication and network infrastructure. With this Web service technology come two fundamental prob... View full abstract»

    Semantic markup languages such as RDF (Resource Description Framework) and OWL (Web Ontology Language) are increasingly being used to externalize meta-data or ontologies about data, software and services in a declarative form. Such externalized descriptions in ontological format are used for purposes ranging from search and retrieval to information integration and to service composition. The barri... View full abstract»

    A base of clearly defined product information is a key foundation for an e-commerce system. The manipulation and exchange of semantically enriched and precise product information can enhance the quality of an e-commerce system and offer a high level of interoperability with other systems. Product information consists of product attributes and the relationships between products. Product categorizat... View full abstract»

    Online e-commerce marketplaces for buying and selling products are omnipresent and bring together several suppliers and buyers. Each supplier and buyer has its own format, concepts and characteristics to represent products. Even if both supplier and buyer use an ontology, they may use ontologies that differ significantly either syntactically or semantically. This paper combines the use of ontologi...

  • Optimizing the catalog search process for e-procurement platforms

    Many e-procurement platforms support XML-based e-catalogs combined with standardized feature descriptions. Beyond the usual keyword search this opens the arena for attribute-based search engines, including parametric search and preference search. We analyze the impact of different search techniques for such e-catalogs on the overall search process costs. It turns out that preference search has a h... View full abstract»

    Electronic data interchange (EDI) standards for transmission of business messages were promulgated in the 1970s. As standards became more complex to provide additional message types and variants, programmers and businesses started calling for simpler, semantically-enabled, systems; some even predicting traditional EDI's imminent demise. Numerous projects to create successor systems using XML were ... View full abstract»

    Volume discount is seen as an effective form of electronic commerce and a promising field for applying agent technologies. In current volume discount mechanisms, items are not allocated efficiently to buyers. Namely, social surplus is not maximum in existing volume discount schemes. To solve this problem, we propose a volume discount mechanism based on the seller's reservation price and the paymen... View full abstract»

    We have developed Papits, a research support system, that shares research information, such as PDF files of research papers, in computers on networks and classifies the information into research types. Papits users can share various research information and survey the corpora of their particular fields. To develop Papits, we need to design a mechanism to identify a user's interest. Also, when cons... View full abstract»

  • Web service decomposition: edge computing architecture for cache-friendly e-commerce applications

    For e-commerce Web service applications, cache should be applicable especially to product information services. However, practical e-commerce use cases have limited cacheability: (1) a message, may contain management components, which reduce reusability of cached messages. (2) content typically consists of composite objects, which makes it harder to maintain cache effectively. To enhance cacheabil... View full abstract»

  • Toward knowledge preconditions for composition of semantic Web services

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):88 - 94
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (216 KB)

    Several researches have been proposed to formalize the knowledge preconditions problem; an action or a plan is epistemically feasible. However, since the feasibility is only checked at design-time and is assumed that it also will be carried out at run-time, it is not suitable in the context of Web services composition, where the transaction is important in the distributed environment. In this pape... View full abstract»

    This paper presents two projects promoting application service providers (ASPs) that are being driven by the Korean government. ASPs deliver application capabilities to multiple entities across the Internet. Although the ASP model has a number of problems, including customization, most experts agree that it still has practical commercial value. Recently, ASPs have been adopted as a new model for i...

    We present a UML conceptual-level integration framework for supporting OLAP operations on diverse XML data sources. Our integration framework takes advantage of the constructs and relationships existing within XML schemas. Two processes are involved in our integration framework. The first one is to convert XML schemas into UML class diagrams. The second is to build a multidimensional model from th... View full abstract»

    A mobile e-business client application may intentionally operate in disconnected mode to reduce the communication cost and the power consumption of mobile devices. We use "data hoarding" to allow business transactions to be processed on the mobile client despite of disconnection, which is implemented by the materialized view. We split the synchronization of a mobile transaction with the server dat... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a framework for merging inconsistent beliefs in the analysis of security protocols. The merge application is a procedure of computing the inferred beliefs of message sources and resolving the conflicts among the sources. Some security properties of secure messages are used to ensure the correctness of authentication of messages. Several instances are presented, and demonstrate ... View full abstract»

    Electronic catalog contains rich semantics associated with products, and serves as a challenging domain for ontology application. Ontology is concerned with the nature and relations of being. It can play a crucial role in e-commerce as a formalization of e-Catalogs. Description logics provide a theoretical core for most of the current ontology languages. In this paper, we present an ontological mo... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we study the use of semantic information to improve performance of transparent query caching for dynamic content Web sites. We observe that in dynamic content Web applications, the most recently inserted items are also the ones that register the highest activity. For example, the newest books in a bookstore are also the ones more frequently browsed and bought. Hence, assuming repeat... View full abstract»

    Indexing and retrieval of XML documents have been drawing attention increasingly since they enable to retrieve and access a certain part of a document easily. So far several methods have been proposed to index XML documents. There are two major categories of XML indexing methods, those coming from the database community, and those coming from the information retrieval (IR) community. They have lim... View full abstract»
