Abstract

The design of integration processes is a key issue for implementing collaborative business processes in Business-to-Business collaborations. A collaborative process is executed through the enactment of the integration process of each organization, which contains the public and private logic required to support the role an organization performs in the collaborative process. Integration process models must be aligned with and derived from their corresponding collaborative process models to guarantee interoperability among organizations. In this work, we propose a method based on a Model-Driven Architecture to enable organizations to support and automate the design of integration process models. This method provides a model transformation process that uses Workflow Activity Patterns to generate the public/private activities required in integration processes to support cross-organizational message exchanges.
