Despite the widespread adoption of web services, several obstacles still hinder their smooth automatic composition. First, techniques that exploit semantic information during web services discovery are still lagging behind despite multiple initiatives like OWL-S. Second, the context in which web services evolve is, to a certain extent, ignored. This prevents deploying adaptable web services. In this paper, we propose a semantic- and context-based approach for web services composition. By… Expand
Research Challenges of Web Service Composition
TLDR
The major challenges related to semantic languages, Web service publishing, discovery, and selection techniques which affect the composition of the service are explored and the effectiveness of automation, dynamicity, scalability, adaptation, and management strategies of the composition approaches are evaluated.

Context Based Dynamic Web Services Composition Approaches: a Comparative Study
TLDR
Context Based Web Service Composition approaches are presented and a comparative study of them are provided and any information that can be used to characterize the entity is presented. Expand
Towards a context-based multi-type policy approach for Web services composition
TLDR
A context-based multi-type policy for Web services composition in which the binding between Web services occurs at four levels: component level to deal with Web services' definitions and capabilities, composite level to address how Web services are discovered and combined, semantic level to handle the semantic heterogeneity that can arise between Web Services, and resource level to focus on the performance of Web services.

Building toward Capability Specifications of Web Services Based on an Environment Ontology
TLDR
This paper proposes to build capability specifications of Web services based on an environment ontology, the main concepts of which are the environment entities in a particular application domain and their interactions. Expand
C-ANIS - A Contextual, Automatic and Dynamic Service-Oriented Integration Framework
TLDR
The proposed C-ANIS is a Contextual, Automatic and dyNamic Integration framework of Services that distinguishes two different approaches to service integration: automatic integration and on-demand integration. Expand
Multi-ontology matchmaker
TLDR
The Matchmaker algorithm, which incorporates a means of distinguishing different ontologies, is presented, together with the overall architecture of the Matchmaker engine. Expand
Exception resolution for BPEL processes: a middleware-based framework and performance evaluation
TLDR
A middleware-based framework for system exception resolution, which undertakes the tasks of failure interception, discovery of alternate services and their invocation, and also presents performance measures, establishing that the overhead imposed by the addition of the proposed middleware layer is minimal.

TLDR
This article proposes a new way of integrating services, namely ad-hoc service integration, and implements the service-integration framework based on OSGi/Felix along with a toolkit providing two different techniques to realize the ad-Hoc integration. Expand
IQoS-aware exception resolution for BPEL processes: a middleware-based framework and performance evaluation
TLDR
A middleware-based framework for system exception resolution is proposed, which undertakes the tasks of failure interception, discovery of alternative services and their invocation, and arranges for bridging syntactic differences between the originally invoked services and functionally equivalent replacements to it, by employing XSLT-based transformations.
