Abstract: Web services are highly requested in mobile communications to provide seamless connectivity between mobile devices and the cloud server. Web service reliability becomes the most demanding feature, which provides low communication overhead and ensures retrieving the appropriate response to avoid the duplicate request execution problem. In addition, it overcomes the request timeout problem that is one of the most affected issues in the mobile experience. This paper proposes two approaches to achieve the reliable web services consumption, Reliable mobile agent and WebSocket approach (MAWS) and reliable middleware and WebSocket approach (MWS). The two approaches are hybrid between the mobile agent and middleware approaches with WebSocket open connection communication protocol. These approaches recover the data loss because of the intermittent connections, overcomes the timeout problem. Moreover, it enhances the mobile experience by achieving web service consumption reliability.
