Use cases for matching semantic annotations of API operations
AbstractSemantic annotation of application programming interfaces (APIs) can enable various functionalities useful for software engineers. In this paper we discuss selected applications for semantically annotated API operations; we focus on applications which exploit matching of API operations together. We describe several use cases which are aimed for both API users (e.g., finding desired API operations or checking API portability) and API designers (e.g., checking APIs for redundancy or completeness). The paper outlines a possible implementation of the approach and discusses its advantages and limitations.
