SECTION 2—WORKFLOW STANDARDS
ASAP/Wf-XML 2.0 Cookbook
Keith D Swenson, Fujitsu Software Corporation, United States
This paper is for those who have a process
engine of some sort, and wish to implement a Wf-XML interface. At
first, this may seem like a daunting task because the specifications
are thick and formal. But, as you will see, the basic capability can
be implemented quickly and easily. This paper will take you through
the basics of what you need to know in order to quickly set up a
foundation and demonstrate the most essential functions. The rest of
the functionality can rest on this foundation. The approach is to do
a small part of the implementation in order to understand how your
particular process engine will fit with the protocol.

Last year saw
the 10th anniversary of the Workflow Reference Model.
This short paper reassesses the relevance of the Model in the
current context of Business Process Management. It discusses the
principles behind the Model, its strengths and weakness and examines
how it remains relevant to the industry today. It concludes by
introducing a number of considerations required to establish a “BPM
Reference Model” and discusses how the various overlapping standards
in this space may be categorised.
