Using Case-Based Reasoning to Support Web Service Composition

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 3994)


With the growing number of Web service, it is necessary to implement web service composition automatically. This paper presents an approach to support large-granularity web service composition accurately and fast according to users’ requests. With this approach, it can reduce the cost of web service composition, and improve scalability, reusability and efficiency. Using a proactive well defined service base, web service composition execution engine can gain the logic with Case-Based Reasoning technology. Comparing to other method and qualitative analysis, the approach proposed by this paper can solve the problem of web service composition under the condition of insufficient and ill-defined knowledge, and can reduce the difficulty and cost of web service composition.
