The growing popularity of the Web and Web services has provided a great potential for a new research discipline, aka, Web service mining, as we have identified here. An effective service mining tool would allow potentially interesting and useful compositeWeb services to be discovered based on the availability of component services, rather than solely on human intuition or knowledge about the composability of these component services, as do traditional top down service composition approaches. We proposed a Web service mining framework that aims at the proactive discovery of interesting and useful service compositions. We also applied the framework to the discovery of useful pathways linking service-oriented models of biological processes. We summarize the main contributions of our research below.
