The Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN) is a standard for capturing business processes in the early phases of systems development. The mix of constructs found in BPMN makes it possible to create models with semantic errors. Such errors are especially serious, because errors in the early phases of systems development are among the most costly and(More)
Web service composition refers to the creation of new (Web) services by combination of functionality provided by existing ones. This paradigm has gained significant attention in the Web services community and is seen as a pillar for building service-oriented applications. A number of domain-specific languages for service composition have been proposed with(More)
The business process modelling notation (BPMN) is a graph-oriented language in which control and action nodes can be connected almost arbitrarily. It is supported by various modelling tools but so far no systems can directly execute BPMN models. The business process execution language for Web services (BPEL) on the other hand is a mainly block-structured(More)
The reuse of software services often requires the introduction of adapters. In the case of coarse-grained services, and especially services that engage in long-running conversations, these adapters must deal not only with mismatches at the level of individual interactions, but also across interdependent interactions. Existing techniques support the(More)

The Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN) is a standard for capturing business processes in the early phases of systems development. The mix of constructs found in BPMN makes it possible to obtain models with a range of semantic errors. The ability to statically check the semantic correctness of models is thus a desirable feature for modelling tools(More)
Standardisation of languages in the field of business process management has long been an elusive goal. Recently though, consensus has built around one process implementation language, namely BPEL, and two fundamentally similar process modelling notations, namely UML Activity Diagram (UML AD) and BPMN. This paper presents a technique for generating BPEL(More)
The Business Process Execution Language for Web Service, known as BPEL4WS, more recently as WS-BPEL (or BPEL for short) [1], is a process definition language geared towards Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) and layered on top of the Web services technology stack. In BPEL, the logic of the interactions between a given service and its environment is described(More)
