|Translating BPEL Process to Open
BPEL2oWFN Version 1.2, 6 April 2006
BPEL2oWFN translates a web service expressed in BPEL (Business Process Execution Language for Web Services) into an oWFN (open Workflow Net). This oWFN can be used to:
- check for controllability or generate the operating guideline using Fiona,
- check for deadlocks or any other Petri net property, or
- check any temporal logic formula with a variety of model checking tools.
BPEL2oWFN uses static analysis to make the generated oWFN as compact as possible to analyze a chosen property. This is called flexible model generation.
BPEL2oWFN is the successor of BPEL2PN, a Java-based compiler generating low-level Petri nets. BPEL2oWFN is a re-implementation for extensibility and performance issues. Its functionality is a superset of the functionality of BPEL2PN.
BPEL2oWFN was written by Niels Lohmann, Christian Gierds and Dennis Reinert. It is part of the Tools4BPEL project funded by the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung. See http://www.informatik.hu-berlin.de/top/tools4bpel for details.
