Abstract: Web services are one of modern technologies used to perform collaboration and interactions between businesses in B2B-based ebXML contexts. In our study, we will focus on business registries-based ebXML because his two layers oriented architecture - registry and repository layers - will enable modularity and flexibility in our solution. In this paper, we expose an efficient approach to enhance the interpretation of the semantic by the business registry. This approach consists of storing semantic OWL - Web Ontology Language - constructs into the business repository and designing pre-stored functions for semantic interpretation of the business repository components. The designed pre-stored functions permit to web services to query repository semantic data following OWL DL - Description Language - reasoning.

Keywords: web services; business to business; B2B; electronic business XML; ebXML; Web Ontology Language; OWL DL; business registry; business repository; web service collaboration; e-business; modularity; flexibility; semantics.
