From Workflow Models to Executable Web Service Interfaces
Workflow models have been used and refined for years to execute processes within organisations. To deal with collaborative processes (choreographies) these internal workflow models have to be aligned with the external behaviour advertised through Web service interfaces. However, traditional workflow management systems (WfMS) do not offer this functionality. Simply sharing and merging process models is often not possible, because workflow management lacks a widely accepted standard theory for workflow models. Multiple research and standardisation efforts to integrate different workflow theories have been proposed over the years. XPDL is the most widely used standard for process model interchange and supported by over 80 systems. However, XPDL also lacks the possibility to relate a workflow model to its possible choreography interface abstraco remedy this situation, we propose to abstract the XPDL model to a higher-level model, perform the integration and the compaction algorithms at th...
