Abstract

EFlow, which is a platform that supports the specification, enactment, and management of composite e-services, is discussed. eFlow is an open system, in that users can replace default components with the one that best suit their needs, to be able to interact with a given e-service environment. eFlow provides an adaptive and dynamic process model, that allows processes to transparently adapt to changes in the environment, to customize service execution according to the customers' needs, and to cope with exceptional situations. In eFlow, a composite service is described as a process schema that composes other basic or composite services.
