A major area of recent web-related research concerns automated web service composition. A major advantage of web services technology lies in the potential of creating value-added services by combining existing ones to achieve customized tasks. How to combine these services efficiently into an arrangement that is both functionally sound and architecturally(More)
In order to make planning technology more accessible and usable the planning community may have to adopt standard notations for embodying symbolic models of planning domains. In this paper it is argued that before we design such languages for planning we must be able to evaluate their quality. In other words, we must clear for what purpose the languages are(More)
In this paper we argue generally for a move to an object-centred formulation of precondition planning. Our previous work has demonstrated some of the advantages of systematically creating and compiling an object-centred domain model. Here we describe a complementary object-centred planning engine which exploits such a domain model, and review some of its(More)
This paper introduces a new planning algorithm which relies on a set ofiterative macros and a set of necessary goal ordering constraints that are generated during a compilation phase prior to planning. The main contribution of domain compilation is to speed up planning and is achieved at the price of a well specified domain model that has been engineered(More)
