ABSTRACT

As the capability of an individual Web service is limited, it’s necessary to create new functionalities with existing Web services. Web services composition is the ability to create a new value-added service by incorporating some existing web services together. A model based colored Petri net (CPN) to provide semantic support for web service composition is proposed. The basic composite constructs in the model are sequence, concurrent, choice and loop. A closed composing algebra is defined to obtain a framework which enables declarative composition of web services. Finally modeling composite processes of Web services based on CPN is applied to a case of naval vessel command and control system.
