FaCETa: Backward and Forward Recovery for Execution of Transactional Composite WS
In distributed software contexts, Web Services (WSs) that provide transactional properties are useful to guarantee reliable Transactional Composite WSs (TCWSs) execution and to ensure the whole system consistent state even in presence of failures. Fails during the execution of a TCWS can be repaired by forward or backward recovery processes, according to the component WSs transactional properties. In this paper, the authors present the architecture and an implementation of a framework, called FaCETa, for efficient, fault tolerant, and correct distributed execution of TCWSs. FaCETa relies on WSs replacement, on a compensation protocol, and on unrolling processes of Colored Petri-Nets to support fails.
