ABSTRACT
<p>This paper describes the development of a distributed multi-agent workflow enactment mechanism using BPEL4WS[1] specification. It demonstrates that a multi-agent protocol (Lightweight Coordination Calculus (LCC)[5]) can be used to interpret a BPEL4WS speci- fication to enable distributed business workflow using web services composition. The key difference between our system and other existing multi-agent based web services composition systems is that with our approach, a business process model(system requirement) can be adopted directly in the multi-agent system, thus reduce the effort on the validation and verification of interaction protocol (system specification). This approach also provides us with a lightweight way of re-design of large components based system.</p>
