The Semantic Web Services arm of the DAML program is developing an OWL-based Web Service Ontology, OWL-S (formerly DAML-S), as well as supporting tools and agent technology to enable automation of services on the Semantic Web.
OWL-S 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. OWL-S markup of Web services will facilitate the automation of Web service tasks including automated Web service discovery, execution, interoperation, composition and execution monitoring. Following the layered approach to markup language development, the current version of OWL-S builds on top of OWL.
