This paper presents a technique for semantic Web service composition inspired by the behavior of ants. The proposed technique combines a service composition graph model with the ant colony optimization met heuristic to select the optimal composition solution. In our approach, we have considered as selection criteria the QoS attributes of the services and the semantic quality of the connections between the services involved in a composition solution.
