Composite applications integrate web services with other business applications and components to implement business processes. Model-driven approaches tackle the complexity of composite applications caused by domain and technology heterogeneity and integration requirements. The method and framework described in this paper generate all artefacts (workflow, data, user interfaces, etc.), required for a composite application from high level service oriented descriptions of the composite application, using model transformation and code generation techniques.

Features Of Composite Service Oriented Applications

A composite application integrates functionality provided by different sources such as conventional applications, systems such as middleware, DBMS, or web services.

Composite applications need therefore to introduce an orchestrating framework to coordinate the interactions between their constituting components, to produce the new, derived, functionality.
