In the era of Global Services, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) has been gaining momentum for building Web-based information systems. Service composition is one of the key objectives for adopting SOA. Unfortunately, Web services are not always exactly compatible and it is a non-trivial task to address the mismatches between them. To this end, an approach based on mediator patterns is proposed to develop mediators for reconciling protocol mismatches of partially compatible services and mediating them together. A heuristic technique is developed for identifying protocol mismatches and selecting appropriate patterns. The main steps of the reconciliation approach are presented.
