Ontologies and semantic web services for m-commerce applications. – E. E Williams, A. E. Ibor, and U. G. Inyang
The semantic web provides the infrastructure that enables the semantic interoperability of web services. Semantic web services, which are services that are self-described and amenable to automated discovery, composition and invocation, will form the next generation of the Web. These services can be represented using ontology and rendered for use in e-commerce vis-a-vis m-commerce. This paper gives a design based on ontologies and semantic web services for m-commerce applications in the domain of Internet bookshelf. This design enhances the security, communication and interoperability between systems, customers and objects and provides a framework for effective m-commerce applications.
