Service composition languages like BPEL and many enactment tools only support structured process models, but most service composition approaches only consider unstructured process models. This paper defines an efficient algorithm that composes a set of cooperative services with their dependencies into a structured process. The algorithm takes as input a dependency graph and returns a structured process model that orchestrates the services while respecting their dependencies. The algorithm is… CONTINUE READING
