WS-BPEL has been adopted as the predominant method for composing individual web services into higher-level business processes. The designers of WS-BPEL scenarios define at development time the specific web services that will be invoked in the context of the business process they model; in the context however of the current web, where each functionality is offered by multiple service providers, under different quality of service parameters, using a fixed BPEL scenario has been recognized to be inadequate for servicing the diverse needs of business processes clients. To this end, WS-BPEL scenario execution adaptation has been proposed, mainly allowing clients to specify quality of service policies, which drive the dynamic selection of the services that will be invoked. In this paper, we present a framework extending the quality of service-based adaptation mechanisms with collaborative filtering techniques, allowing clients to further refine the adaptation process by considering service selections made by other clients, in the context of the same business processes.
