Service-Oriented Computing: State of the Art and Research Challenges
Service-oriented computing promotes the idea of assembling application components into a network of services that can be loosely coupled to create flexible, dynamic business processes and agile…
Restful web services vs. "big"' web services: making the right architectural decision
This paper objectify the WS-* vs. REST debate by giving a quantitative technical comparison based on architectural principles and decisions and shows that the two approaches differ in the number of architectural decisions that must be made and in theNumber of available alternatives.

- 12 October 2005
This work traces back the problem of mechanization of BPM to an ontological one, i.e. the lack of machine-accessible semantics, and argues that the modeling constructs of semantic Web services frameworks, especially WSMO, are a natural fit to creating such a representation.
“A Web service is a software system designed to support interoperable machine-tomachine interaction over a network. It has an interface described in a machine-processable format (specifically WSDL).…
Faster and More Focused Control-Flow Analysis for Business Process Models Through SESE Decomposition

- 17 September 2007
The results suggest that control-flow analysis of many real process models is feasible without significant delay (less than a second) and could be used frequently during editing time, which allows errors to be caught at earliest possible time.
Production workflow - concepts and techniques
