Business process integration and management (BPIM) solutions are increasingly used to address pressing business integration needs within an enterprise or among value chain trading partners. The basic idea of the BPIM approach is to capture the business integration scenarios and requirements through formal modeling of the business operations and transforming the resulting models into platform-independent models (PIM) at solution level that can then be further developed into platform-specific models (PSM) and deployable solutions. The key of this approach is to externalize the business process models from the rest of business, application and other system logic of the integration solutions. In this paper, we propose a solution template approach for developing BPIM solutions. A solution template is a platform-independent model for BPIM solutions where a template is represented through a composition of a set of solution artifacts with an explicit description of the interrelationships among the solution artifacts.
