Abstract: Web services are being considered an excellent tool to solve distributed computing challenges in business integration. Business-to-business integration has become a critical issue as organizations find a greater need to consistently interact with new partners in a global business environment. Picking a service of an organization from the services having similar properties, capabilities, interfaces, and effects is a difficult task and necessitates the use of an intelligent decision making system. So the quality related aspects are also considered for the selection of a best service. Measuring the QoS of a web services for a customer is not an easy task. Selection based on Non- Functional parameters is always be a wrong choice because of false projection and advertisement by the service providers. Here, the challenge is to check the actual reputation for the service provider. In this paper, we are proposing a method to measure the actual reputation of a services provider by considering various reputation measures of few reputed service providers.
