DAML-S 0.5 Draft Release (May 2001)

DAML-S is a DAML-based Web service ontology, which supplies Web service providers with a core set of markup language constructs for describing the properties and capabilities of their Web services in unambiguous, computer-intepretable form. DAML-S markup of Web services will facilitate the automation of Web service tasks including automated Web service discovery, execution, composition and interoperation. Following the layered approach to markup language development, the current version of DAML-S builds on top of DAML+OIL (March 2001), and subsequent versions will likely build on top of DAML-L.

This directory contains a draft version of the DAML-S language under development by a group of DAML researchers (listed below). We encourage feedback from interested parties through the www-ws@w3.org email list.

Please note that this draft is incomplete at present. The Status page summarizes what's missing.



The following individuals (listed in alphabetical order) were involved in preparing the DAML-S 0.5 pre-release. See individual documents for additional information. We also acknowledge the preliminary work contributed by Son Tran.
