service semantics

From Web Services Glossary (2004-02-11) | Glossary for this source

The semantics of a service is the behavior expected when interacting with the service. The semantics expresses a contract (not necessarily a legal contract) between the provider entity and the requester entity. It expresses the effect of invoking the service. A service semantics may be formally described in a machine readable form, identified but not formally defined, or informally defined via an out of band agreement between the provider and the requester entity.
