The emergence of service-oriented computing and cloud computing advocate the development of new software applications on the basis of existing services. To make effectively and efficiently use of existing services, it is essential to describe services so that developers can easily discover and correctly exploit them for their own software development endeavours. In this paper, we present a framework in which existing services available through a cloud are modelled by Abstract State Services. For specification, we use TBox and ABox statements bound to XML Schema and XML. Given such a representation, XQuery can be used for service discovery.
