QoS based web service selection plays an essential role because consumers want to use the services that meets their requirements. Currently web service selection is based on reputation which is calculated based on the ratings provided by the user for each web service. As the ratings alone cannot describe the quality of web service, other QoS parameters should also be considered. The seven QoS parameters considered in this paper are execution time, response time, throughput, scalability, reputation, accessibility and availability. This framework is to provide QoS based semantic web service selection.
