Managing Variability in Workflow with Feature Model Composition Operators [chapter]

Mathieu Acher, Philippe Collet, Philippe Lahire, Robert France
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we propose an approach in which variable points in services are described with several separate feature models, so that families of workflow can be defined as compositions of feature models  ...  In domains (e.g., medical imaging) in which many different kinds of highly parameterized services exist, there is a strong need to manage variabilities so that scientists can more easily configure and  ...  A set of composition operators is used to i) insert a concern with variability into the description of services and ii) merge variability models of connected services.  ...

Workflow Variability for Autonomic IoT Systems

Damian Arellanes, Kung-Kiu Lau
2019 2019 IEEE International Conference on Autonomic Computing (ICAC)  
This paper extends the semantics of the DX-MAN service model so as to combine variability with behaviour.  ...  The model allows the design of composite services that define an infinite number of workflow variants which can be chosen at runtime without any reconfiguration mechanism.  ...  CONCLUSIONS AND FUTURE WORK This paper extended the semantics of the DX-MAN model by mixing variability with behaviour in composite services.  ...

Composing multiple variability artifacts to assemble coherent workflows

Mathieu Acher, Philippe Collet, Alban Gaignard, Philippe Lahire, Johan Montagnat, Robert B. France
2011 Software quality journal  
This paper presents a rigorous and tooled approach in which techniques from Software Product Line (SPL) engineering are reused and extended to manage variability in service and workflow descriptions.  ...  When services are configured within, the propagation of variability choices is then automated with appropriate techniques and the user is assisted in obtaining a consistent workflow.  ...  , to compute dead features) after performing several composition operations.  ...

Domain Specific Languages for Managing Feature Models: Advances and Challenges [chapter]

Philippe Collet
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Managing multiple and complex feature models is a tedious and error-prone activity in software product line engineering.  ...  Its toolset is dedicated to the large scale management of feature models through a good support for separating concerns, composing feature models and scripting manipulations.  ...  Modeling variability and managing the resulting models is a critical activity within the SPL paradigm.  ...

Developing E-Services for Composing E-Services [chapter]

Fabio Casati, Mehmet Sayal, Ming-Chien Shan
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Next, we present the language used for specifying the composition, also discussing why existing workflow languages are not suitable for this purpose.  ...  This paper presents a specific type of e-service (or, rather, a meta e-service) called Composition E-Service (CES), that allows the definition, execution, management, and monitoring of composite e-services  ...  E-services, in most ESP models, will have an interface that allows several operations to be invoked on them.  ...

Using CVL to operationalize product line development with reusable aspect models

Benoit Combemale, Olivier Barais, Omar Alam, Jörg Kienzle
2012 Proceedings of the VARiability for You Workshop on Variability Modeling Made Useful for Everyone - VARY '12  
This paper proposes a software design modelling approach that uses the Common Variability Language (CVL) to specify and resolve the variability of a software design, and the aspect-oriented modelling technique  ...  use CVL to provide an easy-to-use product-line interface for the design concern; 3) automatically generate a detailed design model for a chosen variant using a custom generic CVL derivation operator and  ...  INTRODUCTION A well-established and convenient practice in variability management is to provide a specification of the variability in terms of features separately from the associated artifacts that provide  ...

Building a Customizable Business-Process-as-a-Service Application with Current State-of-Practice [chapter]

Fatih Gey, Stefan Walraven, Dimitri Van Landuyt, Wouter Joosen
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we present our experiences with developing a multi-tenant SaaS document processing system using current state-of-practice workflow technologies from the JBoss family.  ...  Our main experiences are threefold: (i) we were insufficiently able to modularize the activities and compositions that constitute the document processing workflow, (ii) we lacked support for describing  ...  Companies and organizations involved in the project are AGFA Healthcare, IBCN/INTEC-UGent, Televic Healthcare, and UnifiedPost.  ...

Enhancing Workflow Data Interaction Patterns by a Transaction Model

Sebastian Schick, Holger Meyer, Andreas Heuer
2011 Symposium on Advances in Databases and Information Systems  
We present a layered architecture which overcomes most of these problems by extending a workflow management system (YAWL) with facilities to access external data sources, to associate the control flow  ...  Furthermore, we integrate transactional and non-transactional sources to offer better data security, data persistence and data recovery within our workflow model.  ...  In case of a composite task, parameters are mapped from or onto variables of the workflow net implementing the composite task.  ...
