Semantic Web Services Enabled B2B Integration [chapter]

Paavo Kotinurmi, Tomas Vitvar, Armin Haller, Ray Richardson, Aidan Boran
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The use of Semantic Web Service (SWS) technologies have been suggested to enable more dynamic B2B integration of heterogeneous systems and partners. We present our approach to accomplish dynamic B2B integrations based on the WSMX SWS environment. We particularly show how WSMX can be made to support the RosettaNet e-business framework and how it can add dynamics to B2B interactions by automating mediation of heterogeneous messages. This is illustrated through a purchasing scenario. The benefits
more » ... f applying SWS technologies include more flexibility in accepting heterogeneity in B2B integrations and easing back-end integrations. This allows for example to introduce more competition into the purchasing process within e-business frameworks.

Towards a complete SCM ontology

Armin Haller, Jedrzej Gontarczyk, Paavo Kotinurmi
2008 Proceedings of the 2008 ACM symposium on Applied computing - SAC '08  
This paper presents a methodology to derive a Supply Chain Management Ontology based on the RosettaNet specification framework. A prototype to mechanically derive a core ontology spanning all new Partner Interface Processes in the RosettaNet framework is developed and its algorithms to reconcile the ontology structure and to generate a proper subsumption hierarchy are presented. We further present how we designed and referenced outer layer ontologies we analysed to be required to resolve the
more » ... aining disparities in the core ontology. The resulting ontology framework enables to more easily deal with different message structures in dynamic Business-to-Business collaborations and thus ensures a better interoperability for the partners involved.

An ontology for internal and external business processes

Armin Haller, Eyal Oren, Paavo Kotinurmi
2006 Proceedings of the 15th international conference on World Wide Web - WWW '06  
In this paper we introduce our multi metamodel process ontology (m3po), which is based on various existing reference models and languages from the workflow and choreography domain. This ontology allows the extraction of arbitrary choreography interface descriptions from arbitrary internal workflow models. We also report on an initial validation: we translate an IBM Websphere MQ Workflow model into the m3po ontology and then extract an Abstract BPEL model from the ontology.

WSMX: A Semantic Service Oriented Middleware for B2B Integration [chapter]

Thomas Haselwanter, Paavo Kotinurmi, Matthew Moran, Tomas Vitvar, Maciej Zaremba
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we present a B2B integration scenario building on the principles of Semantic Web services. For this scenario we show the benefits of semantic descriptions used within the integration process to enable conversation between systems with data and process mediation of services. We illustrate our approach on the WSMX -a middleware platform built specifically to enact semantic service oriented architectures.

m3po: An Ontology to Relate Choreographies to Workflow Models

Armin Haller, Eyal Oren, Paavo Kotinurmi
2006 2006 IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC'06)  
External business processes (choreography models) are currently disconnected from internal processes (workflow models), which leads to synchronisation and verification problems. Connecting these by directly mapping internal to external processes requires a quadratic amount of mappings; an intermediate ontology reduces the amount of necessary mappings but is not trivial to construct due to the variety in workflow meta-models. We introduce our multi meta-model process ontology ( m3po), which is
more » ... sed on various existing reference models and languages from the workflow and choreography domain. The m3po ontology relates workflow models to choreography models and allows choreography extraction from internal workflow models. An initial validation is given by translating an IBM Websphere MQ Workflow model into the m3po ontology and subsequently extracting an Abstract BPEL model from the ontology.

Semantic SOA to Promote Integration of Heterogeneous B2B Services

Tomas Vitvar, Matthew Moran, Maciej Zaremba, Armin Haller, Paavo Kotinurmi
2007 The 9th IEEE International Conference on E-Commerce Technology and The 4th IEEE International Conference on Enterprise Computing, E-Commerce and E-Services (CEC-EEE 2007)  
Modeling the semantics of business services and their corresponding messages using ontologies enables flexible integration that is more adaptive to business-driven change. In this paper we demonstrate our approach building upon an established Semantic Web Service Framework (WSMX) to facilitate a conversation between heterogeneous services that support both the RosettaNet standard and proprietary information models.
