    Success of web services mainly depends on the availability of tools facilitating usage of technology within the addressed B2B integration problems. One severe problem in loosely coupled systems is service discovery including a sufficient matchmaking definition. The conceptfor service discovery in web service architecture is UDDI providing limited querying functionality and not being capable to deal with the multiple dimensions of a service, like for example semantic, workflow, or Quality ofService aspects. The IPSI Process Finder (IPSI-PF) provides a matchmaking definition and an engine focusing on process aspects. In particular, the matchmaking engine realizes service discovery by extending the capabilities of UDDI to ease the integration with additional UDDI extensions addressing other service description dimensions.
