Managing Top-down Changes in Service-Oriented Enterprises

Xumin Liu, Athman Bouguettaya
2007 IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2007)  
We start with formalizing a SOE's schema since it is a central concept for specifying and managing top-down changes in SOEs. We then propose a change model as a guide to react to changes.  ...  A Service Oriented Enterprise (SOE) provides an efficient and flexible platform where multiple Web services can cooperate together to provide a value-added service.  ...  Control Flow The control flow defines the execution order of the member services. We use the notions in dynamic logic to express the control flow of a SOE.  ...

Life After BPEL? [chapter]

W. M. P. van der Aalst, M. Dumas, A. H. M. ter Hofstede, N. Russell, H. M. W. Verbeek, P. Wohed
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The Business Process Execution Language for Web Services (BPEL) has emerged as a standard for specifying and executing processes.  ...  This paper provides a critical analysis of BPEL based on the so-called workflow patterns. It also discusses the need for languages like BPEL.  ...  Web Services provided by partners can be used to perform work in a BPEL business process. Invoking an operation on such a service is a basic activity that can be specified using BPEL.  ...

Constructing a BPM Environment with BPMN

Ching-Hong Tsai, How-Jen Luo, Feng-Jian Wang
2007 11th IEEE International Workshop on Future Trends of Distributed Computing Systems (FTDCS'07)  
Several real concerns for business purposes are out of scope of BPMN. Besides, it needs many efforts for the implementations of a BPMN environment.  ...  In 2005, Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) is a business process language developed by OMG & WfMC which satisfies the goal. However, BPMN supports only the concepts & notations for modeling.  ...  A process service is a mechanism that packs a set of processes. It can be used to provide service for the process(es) in the WDs being cooperated.  ...

Formalisations and applications of BPMN

Peter Y.H. Wong, Jeremy Gibbons
2011 Science of Computer Programming  
In particular, we introduce a semantic model for BPMN in the process algebra CSP; we then study an augmentation of this model in which we introduce relative timing information, allowing one to specify  ...  To provide a better facility for describing behaviour specification about a BPMN diagram, we also present a pattern-based approach using which a workflow designer could specify properties which could otherwise  ...  As well as describing individual business processes, BPMN may also be used to specify business collaboration where more than one business process (participant) communicates via message flows; informally  ...
