Monitoring Business Processes with Queries
Many enterprises now-a-days use business processes, based on the BPEL standard, to achieve their goals. These are complex, often distributed, processes. Monitoring the execution of such processes for interesting patterns is critical for enforcing business policies and meeting efficiency and reliability goals. BP-Mon (Business Processes Monitoring) is a novel query language for monitoring business processes that allows users to visually define monitoring tasks and associated reports using a simple intuitive interface, similar to those used for designing BPEL processes.
