Abstract:In order to resolve the semantic inconsistency in multi-domain business process collaboration in service-oriented architecture, and realize the barrier-free communication and the share of data and knowledge between Web services provided by providers from various domains, this paper proposed a multi-domain business process collaboration architecture based on ontology mapping. First built the reference ontologies corresponding to each domain’s knowledge, and then constructed collaboration ontologies semi-automatically, finally mapped OWL-S files generated from collaboration ontologies to BPEL and WSDL files respectively. This method could keep the original semantic information in processes and Web services, consequently ensure the semantic consistency of collaborative business processes. The prototype system was implemented and proved by project ImportNET which was funded by European Commission within the Sixth Framework Programme. ......
