    With the increasing presence of web services on the Internet, Quality of Service (QoS) is becoming important for describing non-functional characteristics of web services, and is often employed in web service composition. As QoS is an aggregated concept consisting of several attributes, service composition on enormous candidate sets is a challenging multi-objective optimization problem. In this pa...

    Dynamic selection of the best services to execute abstract tasks of business processes is very important. Indeed, it enables to cope with complex user's requirements that require the collaboration of several more elementary services. However, with the increasing amount of candidate services of each business task that offer different QoS (Quality of Service) values, the selection of the optimal com... View full abstract»

    In order to choose from a list of functionally similar services, users often need to make their decisions based on multiple QoS criteria they require on the target service. In this process, different users may follow different decision making strategies, some are compensatory in which only an overall value on all the criteria is evaluated, some evaluate one criterion at a time in the order of thei...

    Web service recommendation has become a critical problem as services become increasingly prevalent on the Internet. Some existing methods focus on content matching techniques such as keyword search and semantic matching while others are based on Quality of Service (QoS) prediction. However, services and their mashups are evolving over time with publishing, perishing and changing of interfaces. The... View full abstract»

    With the incessant growth of Web services on the Internet, designing effective Web service recommendation technologies based on Quality of Service (QoS) is becoming more and more important. Neighborhood-based Collaborative Filtering has been widely used for Web service recommendation, in which similarity measurement and QoS prediction are two key steps. However, traditional similarity models and Q... View full abstract»

    APIs are increasingly important for companies to enable partners and consumers to access their services and resources. API ecosystems deal with related challenges like publication, promotion and provision of APIs by providers and identification, selection and consumption of APIs by consumers. To address these challenges, to match consumers with relevant APIs, and to support API providers and thus ... View full abstract»

    The ability to compose web services from available services is one of the most crucial problems in the service-oriented computing paradigm. Conventional software engineering approaches and even standard languages compose web services as workflow models that control the business logic required to coordinate data over participating services. Such models would not apply to the design of multiagent-ba... View full abstract»

    Web service composition enables seamless and dynamic integration of web services. The behavior of participant web services determines the overall performance of a composition. Therefore, it is important to choose the high quality participants for service composition. The state of the art in service discovery and selection rely on non-functional aspects also known as quality of service (QoS) e.g., ... View full abstract»

    Web-based API is a new trend for publishing services. To correctly use the API, developers should follow certain service specifications. Data contract is a service specification to express the constraints over the data model used in the APIs. Data contracts, however are not always readily available in a formalized format if not undocumented at all. In this paper, we present an approach to infer fo... View full abstract»

    End-users conduct various on-line activities. Quite often they re-visit websites and use services to perform repeated activities, such as on-line shopping. The end-users are required to enter the same information into various web services to accomplish such repeated tasks. Typing redundant information repetitively into such services negatively impacts the user experience. In this study, we propose... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a novel context-aware cloud service selection model based on the comparison and aggregation of subjective assessment extracted from cloud user feedback and objective assessment from quantitative performance testing. In this model, objective assessment provided by some professional testing parties is used as a benchmark to filter out potentially biased subjective assessment from... View full abstract»
