A service choreography is a model of the interactions in which a set of services engage to achieve a goal, seen from the perspective of an ideal observer that records all messages exchanged between these services. Choreographies have been put forward as a starting point for building service-oriented systems since they provide a global picture of the system’s behavior. In previous work we presented a language for service choreography modeling targeting the early phases of the development lifecycle. This paper provides an execution semantics for this language in terms of a mapping to -calculus. This formal semantics provides a basis for analyzing choreographies. The paper reports on experiences using the semantics to detect unreachable interactions.

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.
