Recent advancements in the design of mobile devices and wireless technologies have produced a successful coupling of mobile devices and Web services, where mobile devices can be a service provider or a consumer. However, finding relevant Web services that match requests remain a major hindrance to its booming. The challenges facing Web service discovery are further magnified by the stringent constraints of mobile devices, and the inherit complexity of wireless heterogeneous networks. While significant research has focused on service discovery protocols in isolation, they mostly lack a holistic capacity to address the different limitations collectively. We introduce a novel discovery framework that addresses all aspects of mobile Web service discovery, yet does not jeopardize the efficiency requirement for this discovery; especially as an application run in resource- constrained environments.
