This paper describes a new prototype of a semantic Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) called Spec Services. Instead of publishing their API through a protocol like SOAP, as Web Services do, services can register to a service manager a powerful syntactic description or even semantic description of their capabilities. The client entity will then send a syntactic or semantic description of its requirements to the service manager, which will try to find an appropriate formerly registered service and bind them together. Today our service manager can deal with two languages: regular expressions, which is probably the most powerful syntactic-only description language; Prolog, which is only semantic. Nevertheless, this implementation is made, since its beginning, with evolution in mind, i.e. to easily support integration of new additional formal languages.
