Enterprise application integration (EAI) has been pursued strenuously by researchers and industrial practitioners for decades. With the advent of Web Services and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), realizing enterprise integration, even automating inter-enterprise interactions become feasible. Virtualization is the fundamental for implementing an SOA based on Web Service technologies. In this paper, we first review the Web Service-Resource Framework (WS-RF) with emphasis on the concepts of Web Services and stateful resource modeling. Then we outline a Service-Oriented architecture that shows how various types of manufacturing resources are virtualized as Web Services; what technologies are used in Web Services register, discovery and transport, and in business process automation. We adopt the WS-Resource approach, for illustration purpose, to virtualize a category of resource-Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV). Different projections are defined based on WS-Resource properties upon virtualization so as to offer different perspectives to the same resources to meet a variety of business requirements
