Recently many enterprises are adopting web services as the standard between heterogeneous software in the XML message based distributed environment to carry out businesses from B2C to B2B. For effective application of web services, differentiated service quality must be guaranteed. However, majority of the current web services do not differentiate quality of messages and the current web servers do not reflect the quality factors of the service level agreement settled between the service provider and user. Our research analyzes the appropriate quality factor for the quality level where differentiated service is provided and suggests a method for assigning priorities to web service message processing processes based on these quality factors. The suggested method assigns the priority dynamically in order to satisfy the service level agreement as much as possible.
