Abstract—Web Services Composition has evolved much interest amongst the researchers in the academic world as well as the industry. With the proliferation of the Internet amongst the masses and the increasing need for making Web Information System components interoperable, research in this field requires new architectural approaches for composing Web Services. One of the goals by adding the Semantic Web in Web Services research is to provide methods and tools to cater for automatic composition of services on the Web. Such dynamic composition of web services can serve applications and users ‘anytime and anywhere’. Though various Web Services Composition approaches out there, in most of these approaches, the ‘context’ in which the web services are offered is ignored to a certain extent. By the term ‘context’, we mean any information that can be used to characterize the entity. In this paper, we have presented Context Based Web Service Composition approaches and provided a comparative study of them.
