With increased sophistication and standardization of modeling languages and execution platforms supporting business process management (BPM) across traditional boundaries, has come the need for consolidated insights into their exploitation from a business perspective. Key technology developments in BPM bear this out, with several web services-related initiatives investing significant effort in the collection of compelling use cases to heighten the exploitation of BPM in multi-party collaborative environments. In this setting, we present a collection of patterns of service interactions which allow emerging web services functionality, especially that pertaining to choreography and orchestration, to be benchmarked against abstracted forms of representative scenarios. Beyond bilateral interactions, these patterns cover multilateral, competing, atomic and causally related interactions. Issues related to the implementation of these patterns using established and emerging web services standards, most notably BPEL, are discussed.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
