Web Service Composition Reuse through Shared Process Fragment Libraries
More and more application functionality is provided for use over corporate and public networks. Standardized technology stacks, like Web services, provide abstraction from the internal implementation. Coarse-grained units of Web service composition logic can be made reusable by capturing it as ‘process fragment’. Such fragments can be shared over the Web to simplify and accelerate development of process-based service compositions. In this demonstration, we present a framework consisting of an Eclipse-based process design environment that is integrated with a Web-based process fragment library. The framework enables extracting process fragments, publishing and sharing them on the Web, as well as search, retrieval, and their reuse in a given process. Process fragments can be shared with others using a Web frontend or through a plug-in within the process design environment which is building on Web service technology.
