Abstract

Rich and generic ontologies about web service functionalities are a prerequisite for performing complex reasoning tasks with web service descriptions. However, their acquisition is timeconsuming and conditioned by the small number of web services available in certain domains. As a solution, we describe a semiautomatic method to extract such ontologies from software documentation,
motivated by the observation that web services reflect the
functionality of their underlying implementation. Further, we report on fine-tuning the extraction process by using a multi-stage evaluation method.
