    Models of Web service compositions that are both readable and verifiable will benefit organizations that integrate purportedly reusable Web services. Colored Petri nets (CPNs) are at once verifiable and visually expressive, capable of presenting subtle flaws in service composition. Constructing CPN models from business process execution language (BPEL) artifacts had been a manual process requiring... View full abstract»

    Business processes involve dynamic compositions of interleaved tasks. Therefore, ensuring reliable transactional processing of Web services is crucial for the success of Web service-based B2B and B2C applications. But the inherent autonomy and heterogeneity of Web services render the applicability of conventional ACID transaction models for Web services far from being straightforward. Current Web ...

    The semantic Web is the second generation of the Web, which helps sharing and reusing data across application, enterprise, and community boundaries. Ontology defines a set of representational primitives with which a domain of knowledge is modeled. The main purpose of the semantic Web and ontology is to integrate heterogeneous data and enable interoperability among disparate systems. Ontology has b... View full abstract»

    The goal of service oriented architectures (SOAs) is to enable the creation of business applications through the automatic discovery and composition of independently developed and deployed (Web) services. Automatic discovery of Web services (WSs) can be achieved by incorporating semantics into a richer WS description model (WSDM) and by the use of semantic Web (SW) technologies in the WS matchmaki...

    Web service technology aims to enable the interoperation of heterogeneous systems and the reuse of distributed functions in an unprecedented scale and has achieved significant success. There are still, however, challenges to realize its full potential. One of these challenges is to ensure the behavior of Web services consistent with their requirements. Monitoring events that are relevant to Web se... View full abstract»
