Abstract—Web service is an implementation of Service Oriented Architecture. It is interoperable, loosely coupled through the components over the internet, and widely used by the consumers. A web service interface is written in WSDL. To understand about the details of a web service consumer uses it description. This description is in structural and non-structural form. The structural description tells the consumer what a service look like, whereas non-structural description helps to understand about the functionalities of the web services. The number of web services in public web service directories are decreasing day by day then the numbers of web services crawled by the search engines. Moreover many public web service that don’t have their descriptions and it is also alarming that a large percentage do not contains more then 1K words in their descriptions. To understand a web service there may be other related web pages over the World Wide Web that contains the information about the service. In this paper, the non structural descriptions of a web service are focused. We have tried to search the information about a web service by passing different set of queries to the search engines. The related pages that are collected from the www are ranked, this result is shown to the consumer after filtering at a specific threshold value.

Index Terms—WSDL, web services, public web services, web services descriptions.
