Abstract: Web services are meaningful only if potential users may find and execute them. Universal Description Discovery and Integration (UDDI) help businesses, organisations, and other web services providers to discover and reach to the service(s) by providing the URI of the WSDL file. However, it does not offer a mechanism to choose a web service based on its quality. The standard also lacks sufficient semantic description in the content of web services, this lack makes it difficult to find and compose suitable web services during analysis, search, and matching processes. In addition, a central UDDI suffers from one centralised point problem and the high cost of maintenance. To get around these problems, the authors propose in this paper a novel framework based on mobile agent, metadata catalogue and user profile for web services discovery in order to reduce the search space and increase the number of relevant services.
