Summary Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are attractive for monitoring and gathering physical information (e.g. temperature) via lots of deployed sensors. For the applications in WSNs, Web service is one of the recommended frameworks to publish, invoke, and manage services. However, the standard Web service description language (WSDL), defines only the service input and output while ignoring the corresponding input-to-output mapping relationships. This presents a serious challenge in distinguishing services with similar input and output interface. In this paper, we address this challenge by embedding the service policy into the traditional WSDL2.0 schema to describe the input-to-output mapping relationships. The service policy is then transformed into a policy binary tree so that the similarity between different Web services can be quantitatively evaluated. Furthermore, a new service redundancy detection approach is proposed based on this similarity. Finally, the case study and experimental analysis illustrate the applicability and capability of the proposed service redundancy detection approach.
