WORKFLOW COMPOSITION AND DESCRIPTION TOOL

Binh Minh Nguyen, Viet Tran, Ladislav Hluchy

Abstract

In this paper, we present a new approach for creating workflow. The workflow is represented as sequence of tasks with explicitly defined input/output data. Parallelism between tasks is implicitly defined by the data dependence. The workflows described in our approach are easily converted to other format. Nested and parameterized workflows are also supported.
