Dynamic Semantic Interoperability for Business Processes

The development of distributed, heterogeneous applications has seen an explosion in both research and practical interest in recent years through techniques such as Business Process Modelling and Service-Oriented Architectures (in particular Web Service Architectures) that provide a new and flexible infrastructure. However, actual interoperation between different applications still largely requires manual design and implementation. This project will extend our earlier unique work in behaviour-based database integration and automated configuration of large systems to provide dynamic run-time interoperability of processes, based on behavioural and data interactions between distributed client and provider processes in a Web Services framework.

Researchers: Georg Grossmann, Wolfgang Mayer, Michael Schrefl, and Markus Stumptner
