Business processes in today's enterprises are dynamic, flexible, and sometimes ad hoc. The enterprise often uses not only process management systems but also various tools, resources, and services to support process execution. Process spaces can provide a ...
Mismatch Patterns and Adaptation Aspects: A Foundation for Rapid Development of Web Service Adapters
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Services Computing
By Woralak Kongdenfha, Hamid Reza Motahari-Nezhad, Boualem Benatallah, Fabio Casati, RĂ©gis Saint-Paul
Issue Date:April 2009
pp. 94-107
Standardization in Web services simplifies integration. However, it does not remove the need for adapters due to possible heterogeneity among service interfaces and protocols. In this paper, we characterize the problem of Web services adaptation focusing o...

Automatic service composition is an important problem in service computing. Existing works on service composition assume different representation models with various expressiveness for component services as well as for the composition logic. This has made ...
Service Mosaic: A Model-Driven Framework for Web Services Life-Cycle Management
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Boualem Benatallah, Fabio Casati, Farouk Toumani, Julien Ponge, Hamid Reza Motahari Nezhad
Issue Date:July 2006
pp. 55-63
Although Web services provide abstractions for simplifying integration at lower levels of the interaction stacks, they don't yet help simplify integration at higher abstraction levels such as business-level interaction protocols. Using a model-driven frame...
Semi-automated adaptation of service interactions
