Within a service-oriented architecture (SOA), software components are accessible via well-defined interfaces. To this end, the discovery and integration of Web services and APIs is becoming an increasingly important task in present day software engineering. Despite considerable research dedicated to Semantic Web Services (SWS), structured semantics are still not used significantly to facilitate services and API discovery. This is due to the complexity of comprehensive SWS models and has led to the emergence of a new approach dubbed Linked Service which adopt Linked Data principles to produce simplified, RDF-based service descriptions that are easier to create and interpret. However, current Linked Services tools assume the existence of services documentation (HTML, WSDL) and do not sufficiently support nonfunctional properties (NfP). Therefore, we introduce SmartLink, a Web-based editor and search environment which allows both humans as well as machines to produce light-weight service descriptions from scratch by addressing both, functional and non-functional service properties.
