The Web has becomes the means for enterprises to deliver electronic services to businesses and customers, and for service providers to discover services and build complex applications by using existing services. The number of the e-services is growing rapidly. This has raised the opportunity for e-service oriented marketplaces to provide the facilities for developing value-added services by combining existing e-services. In this paper, we explore the characteristics of service composition, show how it differs in fundamental ways from traditional issues surrounding workflow integration, data integration, and application integration. We provide a framework for classifying different scenarios of service composition, discuss the unique requirements of service composition, and outline our solution for the challenging issues in service composition.
