Process Enactment and Coordination
Jean-Marc Andreoli, Jean-Luc Meunier, Daniele Pagani
This paper investigates the relationship between systems to enact software processes and systems to
coordinate distributed, heterogeneous and concurrent objects. In particular, we describe in detail how one of
these coordination systems system, the Coordination Language Facility (CLF), developed at the Rank Xerox
Research Centre can be used to model and execute a sample software development process: bug reporting.
The main advantages of using CLF are: i) language facility that allows to dynamically change both the core
process model and the application-specific process templates; ii) modular architecture that allows to easily
reconfigure, migrate and replicate each process component in a distributed, heterogeneous environment.
