Abstract: In this paper, we propose an efficient QoS management approach for QoS-aware web service composition. In the approach, we classify web services according to theirs similarity and then design a QoS tree to manage the QoS the classified web services. Besides, by querying the managed QoS, we propose a QoS-aware web service composition via a particle swarm optimisation algorithm to perform fast web service composition. Experimental results based on two kinds of dataset show our proposed approach outperforms other schemes in terms of query cost, computation time and optimality.

Keywords: web services; quality of service; QoS management; service composition; particle swarm optimisation; PSO.
