Web services have been emerging as a promising technology for business integration. Transactional support to integrated businesses via composing individual Web services is a critical issue. Current Web services protocols (e.g. BPEL4WS) have been proposed to deal with this issue on a strong assumption that each Web service is compensatable for a recovery purpose. It is arguable that Web services composition requires more transactional support beyond the compensation-based solution. This paper

The transactional properties of workflow constructs, which are fundamental to the composition of Web services, are thoroughly investigated. The concept of a connection point is introduced to derive the transactional properties of composite Web services. The scheduling issue of composite Web services is also discussed.
