Abstract: In this paper, we present a demonstrator system which applies semantic web services technology to business- to-business integration, focussing specifically on a logistics supply chain. The system is able to handle all stages of the service lifecycle - discovery, service selection and service execution. One unique feature of the system is its approach to protocol mediation, allowing a service requestor to dynamically modify the way it communicates with a provider, based on a description of the provider's protocol. We present the architecture of the system, together with an overview of the key components (discovery and mediation) and the implementation.
