Abstract: The service oriented computing paradigm proposes the construction of applications by integrating pre-existent services. Since a large number of services may be available in the cloud, service recommendation and selection are key problems. The paper proposes the automation of the selection task that takes the abstract specification of a composition, the definition of concrete services and the preferences obtained from a recommendation routine to produce a list of refinements in preference order. This paper presents three versions of our approach. They differ in implementation options or in the methods used to combine preferences. Experiment results are provided as a benchmark for ensuring the efficiency of our proposal in practice.
