Managing overlapping transactional workflows [chapter]

Juha Puustjärvi, Henry Tirri, Jari Veijalainen
1996 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The notion of parametrized transactional properties of workflow tasks is introduced and analyzed, and the underlying implementation mechanism based on Event/Condition/Action (ECA) rules is discussed.  ...  In this paper we study the issues related to management of overlapping transactional workflows, i.e., workflows that share component tasks and thus avoid redundancy in design.  ...  For example the customer credibility check can be used in several different service workflows, whenever a new customer is added into the set of serviced customers (a new mobile unit, a new "101-service  ...

Managing Continuous Data Integration Flows

Josef Schiefer, Jun-Jang Jeng, Robert M. Bruckner
2003 International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering  
We discuss the challenges of managing flows for continuously integrated data and show how a container environment can provide services that facilitate the flow management.  ...  A particularly difficult aspect of measuring the performance of workflows is the dissemination of event data and its transformation into business metrics.  ...  An ETL container is a component of a Java-based application server and is used to manage the lifecycle of ETL components. It provides services for the execution and monitoring of ETL tasks.  ...
