A Multi-Criteria Web Services Composition Problem



Jeong Buhwan, Hyunbo Cho, Boonserm Kulvatunyou, Albert W. Jones


With its prevalence in enterprise applications integration, the service-oriented approach has been studied in various ways. The popularity, however, results in a number of different standards and implementations. The approach needs agreed-upon definitions and assumptions. To this end, the paper presents a multi-criteria service composition problem and positions to state service engineering functions associated with the problem in a regular expression. The paper also introduces an information compatibility concept to measure the degree of interoperable data exchanges between services.
