Adapting BPEL to Scientific Workflows

  • Aleksander Slominski


In this chapter, we examine the degree to which a de facto standard business Web services workflow language, Business Process Execution Language for Web Services (BPEL4WS), can be used to compose Grid and scientific workflows. As the Grid application models, such as Open Grid Services Architecture (OGSA) [146], move toward Web services and service-oriented architecture (SOA) [135], supporting Web services is becoming a requirement for a Grid workflow language.
