A Study on Cooperation System Design for Business Process Based on XMDR in Grid
Interoperability between legacy systems is essential for various processes to be effectively operated in terms of cooperation in business. A process, however, may include various queries, and thus data interoperability based on queries might not be properly executed due to problems of heterogeneousness. This paper proposes a cooperation system for the business process based on XMDR in Grid. The proposed system solves the problem of heterogeneousness that may take place regarding interoperability of queries in a XMDRbased business process. Heterogeneousness in an operation of a business process may involve metadata collision, schema collision, or data collision. This can be handled by operating a business process by making use of XMDR-based Global Query and Local Query.
