Web services are considered as solution for solving the interoperability problem and the challenge of integration. How to manage Web services more efficiently is a key problem to the applications based on Web services at present. This paper presents a framework for application server based Web services management named FASWSM. The main contribution of FASWSM is Web service adaptation, so that a Web service can be plugged into the application server (AS) as a Web service adapter which enables a Web service to be managed by the application server. Therefore, the Web services management efforts are greatly reduced by leveraging various services provided by the AS. The FASWSM also provides mechanisms for dynamical reconfiguration which improve the extensibility and flexibility of Web services management. The FASWSM has been applied to OnceAS 2.0 application server, and the experiments data show that FASWSM outperforms JAX-RPC in terms of Web service invocation.
