A Framework and Ontology for Dynamic Web Services Selection
September/October 2004 (vol. 8 no. 5)
pp. 84-93

Current Web services standards lack the means for expressing a service's nonfunctional attributes — namely, its quality of service. QoS can be objective (encompassing reliability, availability, and request-to-response time) or subjective (focusing on user experience). QoS attributes are key to dynamically selecting the services that best meet user needs. This article addresses dynamic service selection via an agent framework coupled with a QoS ontology. With this approach, participants can collaborate to determine each other's service quality and trustworthiness.
