XRL/Flower: Supporting Inter-organizational Workflows Using XML/Petri-Net Technology [chapter]

H. M. W. Verbeek, A. Hirnschall, W. M. P. van der Aalst
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we present the architecture of XRL/Flower. XRL/Flower is a software tool, which benefits from the fact that it is based on both XML and Petri nets.  ...  The Petri-net representation allows for a straightforward and succinct implementation of the workflow engine. XRL constructs are automatically translated into Petri-net constructs.  ...  One component of XRL/Flower converts XRL code into PNML so that a Petri net engine is capable of its enactment.  ...

XML–Based Schema Definition for Support of Interorganizational Workflow

W. M. P. van der Aalst, Akhil Kumar
2003 Information systems research  
As a proof of concept we have also developed XRL/flower, a prototype implementation of a workflow management system based on XRL.  ...  The design of XRL is grounded in Petri nets, which is a wellknown formalism. By using this formalism, it is possible to analyze correctness and performance of workflows described in XRL.  ...  A prototype workflow management system named XRL/flower has been developed as a proof of concept. XRL/flower provides full support for the XRL language presented in this paper.  ...

Specification and verification of harmonized business-process collaborations

Alex Norta, Rik Eshuis
2009 Information Systems Frontiers  
By supporting inter-organizational business-process collaborations with service-oriented technology, a scope for more efficient and effective supplychain coordination is anticipated.  ...  The framework permits verification of harmonized processes before their enactment. Moreover, the framework uses private and public layers to protect competitive knowledge of the individual partners.  ...  Figure 13 shows the enactment application of XRL/flower with a visual representation of enactment code resulting from XRL to PLMN mapping.  ...

Dynamic business network process management in instant virtual enterprises

Paul Grefen, Nikolay Mehandjiev, Giorgos Kouvas, Georg Weichhart, Rik Eshuis
2009 Computers in industry (Print)  
The required efficiency of creating and operating IVEs can only be obtained by automated support for design, setup and enactment of business processes within these IVEs.  ...  This process support involves the dynamic composition of local processes of network members into global processes at the IVE level.  ...  The authors acknowledge the work of all members of the CrossWork project, whose work forms the basis for this paper. Sven Till is thanked especially for his help with producing the screen shots.  ...

2015 Journal of Internet Services and Applications  
The latter we test in a feasibility case study to meaningfully support the automation of business collaboration.  ...  This gap our suitability-and expressiveness exploration fills by means of a cross-organizational collaboration ontology that we map as a proof-of-concept evaluation to the eSourcing Markup Language (eSML  ...  Acknowledgement This paper was supported in part by CNSF  ...

With the support of this approach, performance bottlenecks are likely to be eliminated while increased resilience to failure, enhanced scalability, and better user support are likely to be achieved.  ...  The authors abandon the dominating client-server architecture in supporting workflow because of its inherent limitations.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The work of J. Yan in this paper was carried out primarily when he was a Ph.D. candidate at Swinburne University of Technology.  ...
