This paper makes a retrospect for the evolution of semantic description of Web service, especially the evolution after OWL-S and WSDL-S. It also reviews the features and application status of all kinds of semantic description mechanism of Web service such as SAWSDL and WSMO-Lite,the description mechanisms of RESTful Web service as well as SA-REST and hREST, MicroWSMO. Finally, the author gives a future vision on development of semantic technology for semantic Web service.

Key wordsWeb service description      Semantic Web service      OWL-S      WSDL-S      SAWSDL      SA-REST      hREST
