With the increasing popularity of cloud computing technologies, more and more service composition processes are enacted and executed in could environment. Compared with the various and approximately infinite application requirements from end users, the web services held by a cloud platform are usually limited. Therefore, it is often a challenging effort to develop a service composition, in such a situation that only part of the functional qualified candidate services could be found inside a cloud platform. In this situation, the absent services will be invocated in a cross-platform way outside the cloud platform. In view of this challenge, a QoS-aware composition method is investigated for supporting cross-platform service invocation in cloud environment. Furthermore, some experiments are deployed to evaluate the method presented in this paper.
