Abstract: Current semantic web services lack reusability and conceptual separation between services and goals. We propose a unified architecture based on the principles of WSMF and UPML. We introduce goal- and domain-independent web services. Reuse is achieved through the use of bridges and refiners for goal, web service and domain descriptions.

Keywords: semantic web; web services architecture; web services libraries; WSMF; web service modelling framework; UPML; reuse; reusability.
