With the recent innovations in stateful web services, they are now being used to support the construction of distributed systems using software as a service. While the state of web services is preserved, the state is still hidden from clients thus searches for both functionality and state remains a two step process. Proposed in this paper is the Resources Via Web Instances (RVWI) framework. RVWI grants to web services the ability to include their state and characteristics in their WSDL.
