Service selection has always been a hot topic in services computing area. In mobile environment, the characteristics such as mobility, unpredictability and variation of the signal strength of mobile networks bring great challenges for the selection of optimal services. Traditional QoS-aware methods selecting services with the best QoS may not always result in a best composition as the constant mobility makes the performance of service invocation unpredictable and location-based. Moreover, due to the limits of the battery capacity of all mobile devices, how to select cloud services in order to reduce energy consumption in mobile environments is becoming a critical issue. This chapter addresses the problem of mobile service selection for composition in terms of QoS and energy consumption and proposes the resolving methods respectively.
