Abstract—Web services are useless if they cannot be discovered. So, discovery is the most important task in the Web service model. Recent researchers have focused on performing semantic matching to enhance the accuracy of Web service discovery. In this paper we present a framework for Web services discovery and selection based on intelligent software agents, OWL-S and domain ontologies. With the help of software agents, information provided by Web services can be made more efficient and more dynamic. With semantics provided by OWL-S and domain concepts, match and discovery engine can return the most relevant services.
Index Terms—web service discovery, QoS, agents, ontologies.
