International Journal of Web Engineering and Technology (IJWET), Vol. 1, No. 3, 2004

Abstract: This paper proposes a novel approach to implement automatic business process compositions (ABPC), which are based on the Semantic Application Framework (SAF) and the Semantic Application Template (SAT). To build an e-Commerce system using SAF, three problems need solving: developing a new semantic application, converting an existing application to a semantic application, and composing a new business process with existing semantic applications. The vocabulary-oriented business logic makes requirement specifications comparable. A business composer works over a distributed techniques independent platform and matches requirement specifications in SAT with SATs of existing legacy systems to construct a new business process.
