Web Service Composition is a collection of relevant web services related to the service request. The dynamism in selecting the web services also has several ill impacts like cost, space and time complex. The proposed framework uses a set of beliefs towards each web service, and the revision of those beliefs when there is any transition. The web services selected for composition were based on the level of belief with respect to the other web services. The proposed approach mainly focuses on the reconfiguration of service composition with the help of belief revision algorithm. The algorithm specifies a systematic approach towards service composition.
