Abstract

Web services technology promises to enable rich, flexible and dynamic interoperation of highly distributed and heterogeneous applications using Web standards. The providers of composite Web services involving composition plan with different flow patterns need to discover and select suitable candidate Web services for each task of the composition plan at runtime. The dynamic nature of Web services prompts a need for the mechanism to enable the frequent editing of QoS offers of composite Web services by the Composite Service Providers (CSP). In this paper, the authors present a detailed survey of literature in QoS based selection for Web service compositions. The paper also presents different architectures for QoS aware Web service compositions and evaluates various QoS aware selection techniques. The authors classify QoS aware selection techniques for composition based on the nature of composition plan, complexity of QoS requirements and nature of techniques/methodology used in the selection and QoS aggregation.
