Distributed Coordination and Workflow on the World Wide Web
Antonietta Grasso, Jean-Luc Meunier, Daniele Pagani, Remo Pareschi
This paper describes WebFlow, an environment that supports distributed coordination services on the World
Wide Web. WebFlow leverages the HTTP Web transport protocol and consists of a number of tools for the
development of applications that require the coordination of multiple, distributed servers. Typical applications
of WebFlow include distributed document workspaces, inter-intra-enterprise workflow, and electronic
commerce. In this paper we describe the general WebFlow Architecture for distributed coordination, and then
focus on the environment for ditributed workflow.
