Web service compositions have attracted considerable efforts in the context of supporting enterprise application integrations. For a composite service, in addition to its functional requirements, QoS requirements are important and deserve a special attention. The central question to a QoS composition problem is how to compose a service from different subcomponent services so that its overall QoS can satisfy certain requirements. In this paper, we propose an agent-based method using Fuzzy

We show that by using the composition structures, local constraints can be constructed and used with DisCSP. We also present an a new algorithm called the Fuzzy constraint satisfaction Algorithm for Distributed Environment (FADE) to solve the problem and discuss our experiment in building a prototypical system to prove the feasibility of our approach.
