Situational applications are typically short term applications that have to be developed with a limited programming effort by combining third-parties APIs. Recently, public Web sites offer an opportunity in this direction by providing large, ever growing, ...
 
A Semantics-Enabled Web API Registry
Found in: Database and Expert Systems Applications, International Workshop on
By Devis Bianchini,Valeria de Antonellis,Michele Melchiori
Issue Date:September 2011
pp. 247-251
Nowadays, Web applications can be quickly developed by combining existing APIs, independently provided by third parties. In this paper we present a semantics-enabled registry for Web APIs and we address the problem of supporting the retrieval and explorato...
 
A Recommendation System for Semantic Mashup Design
Found in: Database and Expert Systems Applications, International Workshop on
By Devis Bianchini, Valeria De Antonellis, Michele Melchiori
Issue Date:September 2010
pp. 159-163
Techniques and tools for semantic description of mashup components are gaining more and more interest as an opportunity for a (semi-) automatic support of mashup design. We propose a recommendation system to design mashup applications, relying on the seman...
