A Heuristic Approach for Web-Service Discovery and Selection

  title={A Heuristic Approach for Web-Service Discovery and Selection},
  author={A. Karray and Rym Teyeb and M. B. Jemaa},
In today's businesses, service-oriented architectures represent the main paradigm for IT infrastructures. Indeed, the emergence of Internet made it possible to set up an exploitable environment to distribute applications on a large scale, and this, by adapting the notion of "service". With the integration of this paradigm in Business to Business Domain (B2B), the number of web services becomes very significant. Due to this increase, the discovery and selection of web services meeting customer… Expand
A Decentralized Framework for Semantic Web Services Discovery Using Mobile Agent
A novel framework based on mobile agent and metadata catalogue for Web services discovery is proposed, based on user profile in order to discover appropriate Web services, meeting customer requirements, in less time and taking into account the QoS properties. Expand
A semantic web services discovery approach based on a mobile agent using metadata
This is the first attempt at implementing the mobile agent technology with the semantic web service technology and the integration of user profile in the service discovery process facilitates the expression of the user needs and makes intelligible the selected service. Expand

Agent approach for service discovery and utilization
An agent approach for service discovery and utilization (AASDU), which focuses on using light weight autonomous agents built into a multi-agent referral community, and Web service standards (namely UDDI, SOAP, WSDL and XML). Expand
Towards P2P-Based Semantic Web Service Discovery with QoS Support
This paper introduces a novel approach for semantic discovery of web services in P2P-based registries taking into account QoS characteristics, and distributed (semantic) service advertisements among available registries such that it is possible to quickly identify the repositories containing the best probable matching services. Expand
An Overview of Standards and Related Technology in Web Services
The Web Service model is presented and an overview of existing standards are given, the Web Service life-cycle is sketched, and related technical challenges are discussed and how they are addressed by current standards, commercial products and research efforts. Expand
An Efficient Algorithm for OWL-S Based Semantic Search in UDDI
This work proposes OWL-S/UDDI matchmaker that combines the better of two technologies and implemented and analyzed its performance. Expand
A query federation of UDDI registries
This paper presents an extension for a query federation of U DDI registries within Web Service environment that allows queries for businesses or services to be forwarded transparently to those extended UDDI nodes within a federation, and hence the search space is enlarged and the opportunity for the service consumers to discover more services that satisfy their requirements is increased.
