Thilina Gunarathne, Chathura Herath, Eran Chinthaka, Suresh Marru
2009 Proceedings of the 5th Grid Computing Environments Workshop on - GCE '09  
Scientific workflows with their agile characteristics present significant challenges in embracing WS-BPEL for eScience purposes.  ...  In this paper we discuss the experiences in adopting a WS-BPEL runtime within an eScience infrastructure with reference to an early implementation of a custom eScience motivated BPEL like workflow engine  ...  Furthermore the authors would like to thank Srinath Perara, and Lavanya Ramakrishnan for their direct and indirect contributions.  ...

Towards Reference Passing in Web Service and Workflow-Based Applications

2009 2009 IEEE International Enterprise Distributed Object Computing Conference  
Furthermore we show an extension of BPEL that introduces reference variables as new type of data containers in workflows.  ...  In the case the services are orchestrated by workflows the services receive their input values from the workflow engine and return their calculated results back to the engine by value.  ...  Scientific workflows and BPEL: With BPEL as a de facto standard for business processes it is reasonable to use BPEL for the implementation of scientific workflows.  ...

Dynamic reconfiguration using template based web service composition

Kristof Geebelen, Sam Michiels, Wouter Joosen
2008 Proceedings of the 3rd workshop on Middleware for service oriented computing - MW4SOC '08  
In addition, we introduce an extra layer on top of WS-BPEL that allows template processing based on parameter values. This layer offers support for decision logic to adapt processes dynamically.  ...  Furthermore, due to the static character of the scripts, there is insufficient flexibility to model dynamic, evolvable and failsafe workflows.  ...  In an evaluation of WS-BPEL to Scientific Workflows [1] the need for adaptive and flexible workflows is identified.  ...

On using BPEL extensibility to implement OGSI and WSRF Grid workflows

Aleksander Slomiski
2006 Concurrency and Computation  
BPEL can be adapted to OGSI and WSRF Grids and to what extent it can be done.  ...  As the first priority we concentrate on making BPEL workflows easy to monitor and easy to integrate with WSRF.  ...  This definition can certainly be extended to non business processes such as scientific workflows.  ...
