Semantic annotation of Web APIs with SWEET

Maleshkova, Maria; Pedrinaci, Carlos and Domingue, John (2010). Semantic annotation of Web APIs with SWEET. In: 6th Workshop on Scripting and Development for the Semantic Web, colocated with ESWC 2010, 31 May 2010, Heraklion, Crete, Greece.



Recently technology developments in the area of services on the Web are marked by the proliferation of Web applications and APIs. The development and evolution of applications based on Web APIs is, however, hampered by the lack of automation that can be achieved with current technologies. In this paper we present SWEET - Semantic Web sErvices Editing Tool - a lightweight Web application for creating semantic descriptions of Web APIs. SWEET directly supports the creation of mashups by enabling the semantic annotation of Web APIs, thus contributing to the automation of the discovery, composition and invocation service tasks. Furthermore, it enables the development of composite SWS based applications on top of Linked Data.
