Abstract: Recent progress in the field of Web services has resulted in a significant number of Web services in deployment. Furthermore, the number of available Web services is expected to constantly increase during the following years. Since already today, due to the high number of Web services available, it is a hard task for developers and business analysts to choose most suitable Web services for their implementations, there is a need for tools automating this task.

Anyway, despite of the increased academic and commercial interest to Web services, there are currently no tools available for identifying most relevant Web services for requested purposes. Neither is there any publication about methodologies for identifying most relevant and potent Web services. Moreover, according to our knowledge, there is no publicly available study analysing the structure and potential synergy between commercial and governmental Web services. In this presentation we target these shortcomings by providing a case study of automated Web service composition of semantically annotated commercial and governmental Web services. We propose a methodology for identifying most applicable Web services and demonstrate it on a case study. We also analyse interaction and potential synergy between commercial and governmental Web services.
