Web Services Discovery - A Novel Social Networks Approach based on Communities

Abstract

Nowadays Web services have become a new focal point of all the technological market of IT. Their number has grown rapidly and the task of their discovery resting on standards, UDDI and ebXML becomes more and more difficult. These standards have their own inherent limitations; they describe only the functional aspect of Web services and prohibit the possibility of combining them. Most proposed approaches for Web services discovery focused on the description of Web services themselves and neglect their interaction. In this paper we propose a novel approach which combines social networking with the principles of recommender systems for the Web services discovery. We also defined the concept of Web services community in a social network of Web services that gave us the opportunity to establish an abstraction level between the client applications and these last ones.
