Abstract: Consideration of QoS values for accurate web service Selection process has been highlighted in our previous survey paper. Further to that work, we claim that the best performance can be achieved by considering both functional and QoS properties. In this paper, we highlight the application of ontology to represent the non-functional requirements in web service discovery. We emphasize how Ontology if built and refined by domain experts can be used for web service discovery process with the purpose of reuse and improved design. Considering the importance of QoS and Ontology we present a new framework for web service selection which considers dimensionless matrix for web selection and promises to deliver desired ranking of web services according to user preference QoS.
