Enterprise frameworks for workflow management systems.
Software Practice and Experience, 32(8),
This paper proposes an enterprise framework for workflow management (WFM) systems based on
the Workflow Management Coalition generic architecture. In addition, it presents one smaller objectoriented
framework for task scheduling. This framework is obtained by refining one of the packages
of the overall framework. The task scheduling framework was designed following the concept of model
framework as in Catalysis. This sort of framework can be used as a template to generate code components
within an application domain. According to this approach we can develop WFM components that can
interoperate within a well-defined enterprise framework. This paper also presents the process of developing
interoperable code components from model frameworks.
