Abstract

In general, Policy-based approaches play an important role in the management of web services, for instance, in the choice of semantic web service and quality of services (QoS) in particular. The present research work illustrates a procedure for the web service selection among functionality similar web services based on WS-Policy semantic matching. In this study, the procedure of WS-Policy publishing in the UDDI registry was also described. The approach, which is used to represent the policies, is thus represented as semantic trees, and in this representation, measurable quality attributes are considered; and the certain matching operations are used to identify the similarity match via match function or similarity distance function. The illustration of semantic concepts and rules during policy matching, which is not possible by using a mere semantic concept, leads to better web service matches. The proposed approach has been validated through various tests that can evaluate the similarity of large and arbitrary sets of measurable quality attributes. We also compared the proposed procedure with the other ones. The proposed procedure for web service choose, which uses WS-Policy semantic matching, can be more effective to solve different problems like selection, composition, and substitution of services.
