In this paper we present a B2B integration scenario building on the principles of Semantic Web services. For this scenario we show the benefits of semantic descriptions used within the integration process to enable conversation between systems with data and process mediation of services. We illustrate our approach on the WSMX – a middleware platform built(More)
ICT (information and communication technology) has created new opportunities for doing business. E-business, which is a manifestation of this development, relies on efficient information sharing within and between companies. E-business requires interoperability of information systems and, therefore, standardization of information sharing. An e-business(More)
E-business frameworks providing standards and specifications that aim at enabling integrating the enterprise applications of business partners with relative ease have been recently proposed. This paper reports on experiences gained from developing a prototype system for integrating design document management systems based on the RosettaNet e-business(More)
Modeling the semantics of business services and their corresponding messages using ontologies enables flexible integration that is more adaptive to business-driven change. In this paper we demonstrate our approach building upon an established Semantic Web Service Framework (WSMX) to facilitate a conversation between heterogeneous services that support both(More)
This paper presents a methodology to derive a Supply Chain Management Ontology based on the RosettaNet specification framework. A prototype to mechanically derive a core ontology spanning all new Partner Interface Processes in the RosettaNet framework is developed and its algorithms to reconcile the ontology structure and to generate a proper subsumption(More)
The use of Semantic Web Service (SWS) technologies have been suggested to enable more dynamic B2B integration of heterogeneous systems and partners. We present our approach to accomplish dynamic B2B integrations based on the WSMX SWS environment. We particularly show howWSMX can be made to support the RosettaNet e-business framework and how it can add(More)
Several B2B standard frameworks have been developed to support inter-company information exchange. We study how using such frameworks can support design document management in networked inter-company product development processes. We develop a rough framework for comparing the B2B standard frameworks and analyse several of them with respect to the(More)
External business processes (choreography models) are currently disconnected from internal processes (workflow models), which leads to synchronisation and verification problems. Connecting these by directly mapping internal to external processes requires a quadratic amount of mappings; an intermediate ontology reduces the amount of necessary mappings but is(More)
