Abstract : This research addresses three closely related problems. (1) Most current search technology is based on a popularity metric (e.g., PageRank or ExpertRank), but not on the semantic content of the searched document. (2) When building components in a serviceoriented architecture (SOA), developers must investigate whether components that meet certain requirements already exist. (3) There is no easy way for writers of requirements documents to formally specify the meaning and domain of their requirements. Our goal in the research presented here is to address these concerns by designing a search engine that searches over the meanings of requirements documents. In this paper, we present the current state of the ReSEARCH project.
