From SPACE Wiki
The Crowdserving portal lets you experience the Internet of Services. It demonstrates the capabilities of the SPACE Service Platform for private users and business use cases. The portal combines the service platform with a Social Service Network frontend based on the social network framework Noosfero and several customisations thereof.
On Crowdserving, the provisioning and consumption of services is supported by the ability to link clients, APIs/SDKs and documentation to each service.
Crowdserving marks the entry point for scientific experiments, e.g. with the Experimental Facility. Thousands of service descriptions and executable services were already imported into the portal. Likewise, several automatic and user tests of service handling processes have already been performed on it. Hence, it marks a showcase of what current IoS/XaaS technologies are able to do.
The import of services and service description uses a multi-source approach: Universe of Web Services with several galaxies (crawled by Pica-Pica from BioCatalogue/Membrane/OPOSSum/XMethods/EBI as well as the Service-Finder database), WebKnox WADL-described web services, Real-World Services for Dresden (RWSDD) USDL-described human services, Framework Diversity web services including business processes (see also the Hosting Technologies extension), MPWS-generated web services from command-line tools, services created by students (KPI students, SOA students, KP ConQoMon WSML descriptions), UI services and clients...
Also, through the Experimental Facility, many services are enriched with generated metadata, semantic descriptions and SLA templates. Most of this data is, or should, be available from data.serviceplatform.org.
