With the cloud computing becoming more and more popularity in both commercial and academic fields, platform-as-a Service (PaaS) becomes one of the core technologies for service provider to change the way of service-providing to both common users and scientific organization. This paper describes a business process oriented Platform-as-a-Service framework called BPPaaS including an integrated business process application programming model, and business process oriented Platform-as-a-Service middleware. BPPaaS can enable users to submit their business process logic source code programmed by integrated business process programming language to this platform. And BPPaaS will parse the logic source code, extract the business process tasks and task-relationship to form meta-data, and encode business process tasks as standalone executable components. Since different cloud data center has specific data, BPPaaS will assign the business process tasks to the specific data center as task execution nodes, which have the necessary data required by tasks. A scheduling algorithm is introduced to supporting business process intensive application execution with multiple heterogeneous java runtime environments as the underling parallel computation platform. Finally, a case in social security application shows this framework can streamline complex computational business process.
