The introduction of service-oriented computing has created a more dynamic environment for the composition of software applications, where processes are affected by events and data changes and also pose data consistency issues that must be considered in application design and development. This chapter addresses the need to develop a more effective means to(More)
This research has defined an abstract execution model for establishing user-defined correctness and recovery in a service composition environment. The service composition model defines a hierarchical service composition structure, where a service is composed of atomic and/or composite groups. The model provides multi-level protection against service(More)
This paper defines the concept of Assurance Points (APs) together with the use of integration rules to provide a flexible way of checking constraints and responding to execution errors in service composition. An AP is a combined logical and physical checkpoint, providing an execution milestone that stores critical data and interacts with integration rules(More)
The outcome differences between Chinese male and female patients within one-year follow-up after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stent remain unclear. The present study was aimed to compare clinical outcomes in such two populations. From May 1999 to December 2009, 4,334 patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI), unstable angina, stable(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies have reported a discrepancy in baseline characteristics and outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention between men and women. However, this finding has never been verified in the Chinese population. The present study analyzed two-year clinical outcomes after placement of coronary drug-eluting stents in Chinese men and(More)
Web Services are built on service-oriented architecture which is based on the notion of building applications by discovering and orchestrating services available on the web. Complex business processes can be realized by discovering and orchestrating already available services on the web. In order to make these orchestrated web services resilient to faults,(More)
