While creating web applications using web service technology, there is a need for selecting a web service which best suits the need of application. As the number of web services available over the web has increased, the service consumers are always offered large number of services performing similar functionality. There is the need of sophisticated mechanism for quantifying these web-services based on Quality of Service (QoS). In order to find the best fit web service in response to the service discovery request, the consumer needs to know quantized QoS ranking and the reliability of this ranking. The Current UDDI registries do not provide a method for service providers to publish the QoS information of their services.
