We argue that essential facets of Web services, and especially those useful to understand their interaction, can be described using process-algebraic notations. Web service description and execution languages such as BPEL are essentially process description languages; they are based on primitives for behaviour description and message exchange which can also(More)
Component-Based Software Engineering focuses on the reuse of existing software components. In practice, most components cannot be integrated directly into an application-to-be, because they are incompatible. Software Adaptation aims at generating, as automatically as possible, adaptors to compensate mismatch between component interfaces, and is therefore a(More)
Reuse and composition are increasingly advocated and put into practice in modern software engineering. However, the software entities that are to be reused to build an application, e.g., services, have seldom been developed to integrate and to cope with the application requirements. As a consequence, they present mismatch, which directly hampers their(More)
Service-oriented computing has emerged as a new software development paradigm that enables implementation of Web accessible software systems that are composed of distributed services which interact with each other via exchanging messages. Modeling and analysis of interactions among services is a crucial problem in this domain. Interactions among a set of(More)
Adaptation is of utmost importance in systems developed by assembling reusable software services accessed through their public interfaces. This process aims at solving, as automatically as possible, mismatch cases which may be given at the different interoperability levels among interfaces by synthesizing a mediating adaptor. In this paper, we present a(More)
Formal methods such as Z and Petri nets can be used to specify invariants that should hold during the execution of component-based applications such as those regarding changes in the architecture of the application and valid sequences of architecture reconfigurations. Integrating logic for checking and enforcing these invariants into the application’s(More)

It is now widely accepted that formal methods are helpful for many issues raised in the web services area. In this paper, we advocate the use of process algebra as a first step in the design and development of executable web services. From such formal descriptions, reasoning tools can be used to validate their correct execution. We define some guidelines to(More)
