SOA is a well adopted architecture for Web Service organization, home services could also be organized by SOA through which the services could be accessed platform-independently. However, SOA does not describe the semantic of the service, so that the service retrieval would encounter ambiguous problems due to polysemy or synonym. This paper firstly presents three domain ontologies to annotate the semantics of home service from different facets, and then presents an ontology-based architecture for service registry, retrieval and invocation.
