The paper presents a parameterized and highly customizable semantic matchmaking framework. The matchmaking approach on which this framework is based distinguishes three types of matching: (i) functional attribute level matching, (ii) functional service-level matching, and (iii) non-functional matching. This paper focuses only on functional matching. A series of algorithms is advised for both attribute-level and service-level matching. These algorithms are designed to support a customizable matching process that permits the user to control the attributes matched, the order in which attributes are compared, and the way the sufficiency is computed for both attribute and service levels. Experimental results show that both the proposed algorithms and the original one perform pretty much in the same way.
