Web services have been used widely in modern software applications since they, as networked software units, provide certain functionality that can be incorporated into building software applications in a flexible manner. Like other software, Web services may experience changes and failures which make them inaccessible to service consuming applications. In this case, it is then necessary for those applications to find other alternative services. One of the effective approaches is to evaluate both structural similarity and semantic similarity between the description of the service in use and those of other candidate services in order to identify an alternative.
