Abstract

Despite considerable research dedicated to Semantic Web Services (SWS), structured semantics are still not used significantly to annotate Web services and APIs. This is due to the complexity of comprehensive SWS models and has led to the emergence of a new approach dubbed Linked Services. Linked Services adopt Linked Data principles to produce simplified, RDF-based service descriptions that are easier to create and interpret. However, current Linked Services editors assume the existence of services documentation in the form of HTML or WSDL files. Therefore, we introduce SmartLink, a Web-based editor and search environment for Linked Services. Based on an easy-to-use Web form and a REST-ful API, SmartLink allows both humans as well as machines to produce light-weight service descriptions from scratch.
