Abstract or Description

The paradigm of web services has been transforming the internet from a repository of data into a repository of services, or so-called web services. As more and more web services are published on the internet, how to opt for an appropriate and trustworthy web service poses a big challenge. In this paper we propose a mobile agents-based approach that selects reliable web service components in a cost-effective manner.
