Abstract: The recent trend in the web world is to accomplish almost all the user services in every field through the web portals of the respective organizations. But a specific task with series of actions cannot be completed by a single web service with limited functionality. Therefore, multiple web services with different functionalities are composed together to attain the result. Web service composition is an approach that combine various services to fulfill the Web related tasks with preferred quality. Composition of such services will become more challenging when these web services are with similar functionalities, varying Quality and from several providers. Hence, the overall QoS (Quality of Service) could be considered as the major factor for composition. Moreover, in most of the compositions the expected QoS cannot be attained when the task is finished. Sometimes the complete task may have affected by a poor performed single web service. So, while composition, at most care should be taken to select a particular web service. Composing web services dynamically is the main method used to overcome these difficulties. However, to reach the actual functionality of the specific task the quality of each individual service is very much necessary. The QoS of a web service normally evaluated using the non-functional attributes, such as response time, availability, reliability, throughput, etc. Also, while composition, the same level of quality is not expected for individual web services that are included in the chain. So, a framework proposed in this research paper, for web service composition by setting appropriate weightage for the non-functional parameters. Experimental results show that implementation of this method will definitely pave the way to reach the maximum performance of the composition with improved QoS.
