With the rapid proliferation of Web services as the medium of choice to securely publish application services beyond the firewall, the importance of accurate, yet flexible matchmaking of similar services gains importance both for the human user and for dynamic composition engines. In this article, we present a novel approach that utilizes the case based reasoning methodology for modelling dynamic Web service discovery and matchmaking, and investigate the use of case adaptation for service composition. Our framework considers Web services execution experiences in the decision making process and is highly adaptable to the service requester constraints. The framework also utilizes OWL semantic descriptions extensively for implementing both the components of the CBR engine and the matchmaking profile of the Web services.
