An Agent Architecture for Qos-Based Web Service Composition Using the Skyline Algorithm

El-Alami Ayoub, Hair Abdellatif


Web service composition is a concept based on the built of an abstract process, by combining multiple existing class instances, where during the execution, each service class is replaced by a concrete service, selected from several web service candidates. This approach has as an advantage generating flexible and low coupling applications, based on its conception on many elementary modules available on the web. The process of service selection during the composition is based on several axes, one of these axes is the QoS-based web service selection. The Qos or Quality of Service represent a set of parameters that characterize the non-functional web service aspect (execution time, cost, etc...). The composition of web services based on Qos, is the process which allows the selection of the web services that fulfill the user need, based on its qualities. Selected services should optimize the global QoS of the composed process, while satisfying all the constraints specified by the client in all QoS parameters. In this paper, we propose an approach based on the concept of agent system and Skyline approach to effectively select services for composition, and reducing the number of candidate services to be generated and considered in treatment. To evaluate our approach experimentally, we use a several random datasets of services with random values of qualities.
