Abstract:While an important area of research in the services community is focused on the composition of services to orchestrate processes, based mainly on the WS-BPEL standard with a services view, we take a different standpoint. Ours has also a business perspective, defining services to support the execution of business processes (BPs) in a BPMS platform. Our vision focuses on process and service models and the relationships between them, allowing traceability between elements belonging to the business and the software areas. This paper presents a reference model-driven architecture linking BPs to services, automating the generation of Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) from BPs architectures. Our approach applies both to collaborative and orchestration BPs; in the first scenario it helps support the agreements reached regarding interactions between different organizations. We believe the application of our model-driven approach, which is based on metamodels, models and transformations between them, can support organizations in their effort to align their BPs with service support.
