In service-based systems, one of the most important problems is how to discover desired web services. In this paper, we propose a novel IR-Style mechanism for discovering and ranking web services automatically. In particular, we introduce the notion of preference degree for web services and then we define service relevance and service importance as two desired properties for measuring the preference degree. Furthermore, various algorithms are given for computing the relevance and importance of services, respectively. Experimental results show the proposed IR-style search strategy is efficient and practical.
