Abstract

Social Web Services (SWSs) constitute a novel paradigm of service-oriented computing, where Web services, just like humans, sign up in social networks that guarantee, e.g., better service discovery for users and faster replacement in case of service failures. In past work, composition of SWSs was mainly supported by specialised social networks of competitor services and cooperating ones. In this work, we continue this line of research, by proposing a novel SWSs composition procedure driven by the SWSs reputation. Making use of a well-known formal language and associated tools, we specify the composition steps and we prove that such reputation-driven approach assures better results in terms of the overall quality of service of the compositions, with respect to randomly selecting SWSs. © 2014 IEEE.
