Large-scale use of Grids and service-oriented architectures requires agreement of providers and consumers on the terms of use of services, modelled as Service Level Agreements. WS-Agreement is an evolving standard, using advertisements to describe available services and negotiation constraints on the terms of use for a service. This allows for more efficient service discovery and negotiation. If multiple advertisements are available at the start of a negotiation, a starting advertisement needs to be selected. This, however, has great impact on the possible outcome of the negotiation process. This paper identifies relevant functions for advertisement selection and characterises their resulting behaviour.
