Abstract

End-users repetitively perform various on-line tasks and invoke multiple web services for their re-occurring activities, such as planning a trip. Usually, end-users have to complete different tasks in order to achieve a goal, and look through large volumes of services to find the best ones that satisfy their constraints, such as a budget limit. Current approaches on service composition require programming skills and domain knowledge to accomplish goals. Moreover, existing approaches lack an automatic way to analyze end-users' goals and extract relevant tasks for achieving goals. In this paper, we provide a lightweight service composition framework for end-users with limited technical background. Our framework analyzes end-users' goals expressed in natural languages to mine tasks (e.g., plan a trip) and non-functional constraints (e.g., budget).
