A selection of an appropriate Web service can be viewed as a multi-criteria decision-making problem involving selection of multi-attribute candidate service from a set of available services. This selection should not be based on intuition but need thorough understanding of the decision problem and the process to prioritize the features and, hence services. This study proposes analytical hierarchy process (AHP) approach for prioritizing Web service features, thus aiding the decision making process in a quantitative way. The AHP method is a way of solving the decision problem by pairwise comparison of elements with consistency in results. An illustrative problem for prioritizing Web service features is also detailed here so as to substantiate our proposal.
