A new way to enact business processes in enterprises is to deploy workflow technology. Workflow systems are proactive computer systems, which orchestrate the execution of long-living processes. Process agents, i.e. members of the organization structures of an enterprise, are in charge of executing processes and process steps. Workflow management systems have do associate appropriate process agents to processes proactively. We call this task process agent coordination. We show that ECA rules implemented on top of active database systems are suitable to facilitate agent coordination in workflow management systems
