	Title		: Requirements for Simple Workflow Access Protocol

	Pages		: 9

   Workflow is intuitive and powerful paradigm for capturing business
   processes, reasoning about them, and process specifications to
   produce corresponding implementations that are supported by the
   information systems. There has been a growing acceptance of workflow
   technology in numerous application domains such as
   telecommunications, software engineering, manufacturing, production,
   finance and banking, laboratory sciences, healthcare, shipping and
   office automation.
   In the last few years, pervasive network connectivity, exploded
   growth of Internet and web technologies has changed our computational
   landscape to distributed, heterogeneous and network centric computing
   model from centralized, desktop-oriented, and homogenous computing.
   This has raised challenging requirements for workflow technologies in
   terms being required to support heterogeneous, distributed computing
   infrastructures, interoperability, scalability and availability.
   The main objective of this document is to identify various business
   requirements for Internet based Workflow Access Protocol to
   instantiate, control and monitor the workflow process instances.
   Definition and administration of process specifications are not
   discussed in this requirements.

	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
