Selecting Web Services “On the Fly” According to Dynamic Social Communities Creation

Abdelmalek Metrouh, Valérie Monfort


Service selection is a central challenge not only in the context of a Service Oriented Architecture and SaaS (Software as a Service) but also in social Web. Once functionally sufficient services have been selected, a further selection based on non-functional properties (NFPs) becomes essential in meeting the requirements and preferences expressed by users’ communities. Moreover, communities can dynamically be created and services can at run time be associ-ated. This paper aims to propose an overview of research works in (dynamic) services selection and focuses on social Web. Finally, it aims defining an ap-proach for service allocation “on the fly” according to dynamic creation of social Web communities.
