Web service conversation modeling: a cornerstone for e-business automation

  title={Web service conversation modeling: a cornerstone for e-business automation},
  author={B. Benatallah and F. Casati and Farouk Toumani},
  journal={IEEE Internet Computing},
Web services are emerging as a promising technology for effectively automating interorganizational interactions. However, despite the growing interest, several issues remain to be addressed to provide Web services with benefits similar to what traditional middleware brings to intraorganizational application integration. We identify a framework that builds on current standards to help developers define extended service models and richer Web service abstractions. The framework's main feature is a… Expand
A B2B conversational architecture for semantic Web services based on BPIMS-WS
A conceptual model and architecture is proposed to effectively manage conversations between business processes and leverage Web services from mere software components to actual entities of a business interaction. Expand
Model-Driven Web Service Development
This paper shows how, starting from the external specifications of a Web service, this framework can support the generation of extensible service implementation templates as well as of complete (executable) service specifications, thereby considerably simplifying the service development work.

Visual modeling of RESTful conversations with RESTalk
Web services foster the digitalization currently taking place in the business world as they support the automated re-use and integration of business logic within and even between companies, thusExpand
Conversations for Web Services Composition
This paper presents how conversations are integrated into Web services composition and promotes Web services to the level of active components that engage in conversations, make decisions, and adjust their behavior according to the context of the situations in which they participate. Expand
Service Mosaic: A Model-Driven Framework for Web Services Life-Cycle Management
Using a model-driven framework for Web services life-cycle management, the authors help facilitate the scalable development and maintenance of service-oriented applications by analyzing and managing Web service business protocols. Expand
A Novel Approach for Process Mediation of Web Services
Although several efforts were made to support the standardization of Web Services, they are not always perfectly compatible to each other due to the distributed nature. In this paper, a novelExpand
Reliable Web services composition using a transactional approach
A transactional approach is presented to ensure the failure atomicity of CS required by partners and a set of rules are used to validate the composite service with regards to designers' transactional requirements. Expand
ServiceMosaic project: modeling, analysis and management of web services interactions
An overview of ServiceMosaic is provided, which is a platform for model-driven analysis and management of service interactions, on business protocols modelling and analysis by providing operators for compatibility and replaceability checking of business protocols, and model- driven adapter development for business protocols.

A survey on web services composition
The urgent need for service composition is discussed, the required technologies to perform service composition are presented, and several different composition strategies, based on some currently existing composition platforms and frameworks are presented. Expand
Insights into Web Service Orchestration and Choreography
This paper tries to provide a critical snapshot of currently available standards, particularly focusing on Web service orchestration and choreography, and tries to highlight mutual dependencies existing among orchestrationand choreography. Expand


Conceptual Modeling of Web Service Conversations
This paper identifies a framework for defining extended service models to enable the definition of richer Web service abstractions and identifies and defines specific abstractions based on an analysis of existing e-commerce Web portals. Expand
Commitment-based interoperation for e-commerce
This work develops a multiagent approach for interoperation in e-commerce by developing a behavioral model to specify autonomous, heterogeneous agents representing different trading entities and an execution architecture that supports persistent and dynamic (re)execution. Expand
SELF-SERV: A Platform for Rapid Composition of Web Services in a Peer-to-Peer Environment
The SELF-SERV platform for rapid composition of Web services, in which Web services are declaratively composed, and the resulting composite services are executed in a peer-to-peer and dynamic environment is developed. Expand
Web Services Management Network: an overlay network for federated service management
We introduce the architecture, object model, components, and protocols of a management overlay for federated service management, called Web Services Management Network (WSMN). WSMN targets managementExpand
The Evolution of Distributed Component Architectures
This paper looks at the evolution of component architectures in the past decade and tries to draw some conclusions about how these systems will evolve in the next several years. Expand
