    1. Step by Step

      In this section, we illustrate how to use our OWL-LingS Editor for describing Linguistic Web Services.

      User Interface of OWL-LingS Editor
      -The service provider may enter the WSDL file URL or choose a WSDL file by clicking on the ‘Browse‘ button (as it is indicated in the user interface above by (1)), a set of operations is shown (as it is indicated in the user interface below by (2)).
      -By selecting one operation, its name, its textual description, and its I/O are shown in area (3).
      -Nevertheless, the I/O types do not reflect the suitable linguistic resources. So, the service provider has to semantically annotate the I/O by clicking on the ‘Browse‘ button and choose concepts from the domain ontology (as it is shown below).

      Linguistic Domain Ontology
      -The inputs and outputs areas in the user interface contain the parameters names, their types before annotation (as indicated by WSDL Type column in the interface), and their types after annotation (as indicated by OWL Type column).
      -In addition, the service provider can add some parameters related to the nonfunctional linguistic properties by choosing a value for each property.
      -There are some relations between properties as it is indicated in the description section of OWL-LingS Editor . For example, the service provider cannot choose the ‘Resource‘ or ‘Linguistic_Phenomenon‘ if he/she does not choose the ‘Processing Level‘ (as it is shown in area 4).
      -Moreover, if the chosen ‘Linguistic Phenomenon‘ were treated by an approach, one value from the list of approaches would be selected.
      -The same process will be applied for the other nonfunctional linguistic properties.
      -In area 5, the service provider can choose a value of ‘Sub Phenomenon‘ if the main chosen ‘Phenomenon‘ is refined into a ‘Sub-phenomenon‘.
      -He could also choose a ‘Formalism‘ value if the chosen ‘Sub-Phenomenon‘ were supported by a ‘Formalism‘.
      -Besides, he can choose an ‘Analysis Type‘.
      -After choosing these values, the service provider has to click on the Add Sub Phenomenon button, and the chosen features (i.e., properties) of the ‘Sub-Phenomena‘ are shown in the table (see area 5 in the user interface).
      -This process can be repeated as many times as possible for more refinement of the main ‘Phenomenon‘.
      -Finally, a semantic description would be generated by clicking on "Generate OWL-LingS" button.
      -The generated file has the following extension "owl-lings".
