We report on using semantic technology to enhance application servers. In particular, the conclusion of our analysis is that OWL-S, an emerging effort for semantic webservice descriptions, is a good starting point for supporting many frequent tasks within a concrete application server which facilitates reusing and combining SemanticWeb software modules (e.g. ontology stores, reasoners, etc.). The focus of this paper is on detailing the design of the supporting ontology: (1) identifying the aspects of application servers that benefit from semantic technology and (2) analyzing and extending OWL-S for this purpose.We also report on the integration of this ontology within the server.
