A Business-Aware Web Services Transaction Model
Advanced business applications typically involve well-defined standard business functions such as payment processing, shipping and tracking, managing market risk and so on, which apply to a variety of application scenarios. Although such business functions drive transactional applications between trading partners they are completely external to current Web services transaction mechanisms as they are only expressed as part of application logic. To remedy this situation, this paper proposes a business aware Web services transaction model and support mechanisms. The model allows expressing and blending business and QoS aware transactions on the basis of business agreements stipulated in SLAs and business functions.
