Web services, like their real life counterparts have several properties and thus truly useful semantic information can only be defined through standard ontology languages. Semantic Web is an important initiative in this respect. However although service registries are the major mechanisms to discover services, the semantic support provided by service registries is completely detached from the Semantic Web effort.
