The integration of Web services is a recent outgrowth of the Business Process integration field that will require powerful meta-schema matching mechanisms supported by higher level abstractions, such as UML meta-models. Currently, there are many XML-based workflow process specification languages (e.g. XPDL, BPEL) which can be used to define business(More)
The work presented in this paper targets the software integration on the level of business process models. The goal is to create the behavioural description of an integrated system that is consistent with the behavioural descriptions of the original local systems intended to be integrated. We build the be-havioural description from existing models of the(More)
Integration of autonomous object-oriented systems requires the integration of object structure and object behaviour. Research in federated information systems has so far mainly addressed integration of object structure. The integration of object behaviour carries with it the promise to finally move integration tools beyond the state of the art at which they(More)
Flexible data integration has been an important IT research goal for decades. About ten years ago, a significant step was taken with the introduction of declarative methods (e.g., Clio). Since this work, mostly based on classic dependency analysis, extensions have been developed that express more powerful semantic relationships. However, much of this work(More)
The ISO 15926 standard was developed to facilitate the integration of data in support of the life-cycle activities and processes of process plants. It is currently used for the handover of design documents between those companies that design and engineer engineering equipment to those organisations responsible for their operation and maintenance within the(More)
