Semantic Web Services and Agents: A Reality Check

This paper aims at analyzing the state of the art of Web services to understand how they can now play a crucial role in the landscape of agent systems, after several years of uncertainty. The paper is first outlined by illustrating the main interfaces and protocols that are now emerging and by providing a list of the main repositories of Web services that are really available in the network. The results of the study clearly show that REpresentational State Transfer (RESTful) services are overtaking Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) services.
