Composing RESTful Services and Collaborative Workflows: A Lightweight Approach
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Florian Rosenberg, Francisco Curbera, Matthew J. Duftler, Rania Khalaf
Issue Date:September 2008
pp. 24-31
The use of RESTful Web services has gained momentum in the development of distributed applications based on traditional Web standards such as HTTP. In particular, these services can integrate easily into various applications, such as mashups. Composing RES...
 
Component Contracts in Service-Oriented Architectures
Found in: Computer
By Francisco Curbera
Issue Date:November 2007
pp. 74-80
For SOAs to reach their full potential, the basic interoperable framework must accommodate meaningful quality-of-service contracts. Work on both industry-specific standards and semantic Web services is still needed to fully meet that goal.
 
IntegratingWeb Services and Messaging
Found in: Web Services, IEEE International Conference on
By Ignacio Silva-Lepe, Michael J. Ward, Francisco Curbera
Issue Date:September 2006
pp. 111-118
Web Services and Messaging, as application-toapplication communication paradigms, have so far been considered separately, with independent programming models and supporting middleware. Different efforts are now introducing messaging notions such as asynchr...
 
Manners Externalize Semantics for On-demand Composition of Context-aware Services
Found in: Web Services, IEEE International Conference on
By Ali Arsanjani, Francisco Curbera, Nirmal Mukhi
Issue Date:June 2004
pp. 583
Architectural mismatch [Architectural Mismatch, or, Why it's hard to build systems out of existing parts]; the semantic and syntactic gap preventing component composition, can be partially alleviated through the ubiquity of the protocols for service compos...
 
From DAML-S Processes to BPEL4WS
Found in: Research Issues in Data Engineering, International Workshop on
By Sisi Liu, Rania Khalaf, Francisco Curbera
Issue Date:March 2004
pp. 77-84
<p>BPEL4WS is a process modeling language for composing Web services. On the other hand, DAML-S is an ontology for de.ning Semantic Web services that includes a process model.</p> <p>We present a one-way mapping from the DAML-S process mo...
 
Metadata-Driven Middleware for Web Services
Found in: Web Information Systems Engineering, International Conference on
By Francisco Curbera, Nirmal Mukhi
Issue Date:December 2003
pp. 278
Service metadata plays a central role in Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)s. Explicit service metadata makes possible the decoupling of applications and supports dynamic selection and binding. Moreover it extends the basic interoperability model beyond t...
 
Business-centric monitoring of service composites
Found in: Proceedings of the Workshop on Posters and Demos Track (PDT '11)
By Aleksander Slominski, Francisco Curbera, Geetika T. Lakshmanan, John Alcorn, Paul T. Keyser
Issue Date:December 2011
pp. 1-2
Monitoring enterprise applications that consist of multiple heterogeneous components executing in different runtimes is a challenging problem particularly from a business centric perspective. We propose a business centric monitoring approach that involves ...
     
A method of calculating the cost of reducing the risk exposure of non-compliant process instances
Found in: Proceedings of the first ACM workshop on Information security governance (WISG '09)
By Francisco Curbera, Yurdaer N. Doganata
Issue Date:November 2009
pp. 7-12
A method is introduced to measure the risk of being non-compliant and the cost of reducing the risk by performing internal audits with the help of automated audit tools. Risk exposure of a business process is defined in terms of the prevalence of non-compl...

Issue Date:May 2007
pp. 993-1002
In today's Web, many functionality-wise similar Web services are offered through heterogeneous interfaces (operation definitions) and business protocols (ordering constraints defined on legal operation invocation sequences). The typical approach to enable ...
     
Cooperative middleware specialization for service oriented architectures
Found in: Proceedings of the 13th international World Wide Web conference on Alternate track papers & posters (WWW Alt. '04)
