Web Service Composition provides an opportunity for enterprises to increase the ability to adapt themselves to frequent changes in users' requirements by integrating existing services. Our research has focused on proposing a framework to support dynamic composition and to use both SOAP-based and RESTful Web services simultaneously in composite services. In this paper a framework called "Model-driven Dynamic Composition of Heterogeneous Service" (MDCHeS) is introduced. It is elaborated in three

In order to increase the dynamicity of MDCHeS framework, Model Driven Architecture and proxy based ideas are used. The [12] is a prototype that guides a user in the dynamic composition of Web services. Authors have developed a semi-automatic process that includes presenting matching services to the user at each step of a composition and filtering the possibilities. The generated composition is then made to execute through WSDL. In [13] the authors have presented a context based Web service composition approaches and provided a comparative study of them, by term context they mean any information that can be used to characterize the entity. Several approaches have utilized the proxy and adapter
