Summary: Economic pressures are rapidly driving businesses towards automation of e-business (electronic business) transactions. Successful e-business relies on accurate interchange of information among large numbers of autonomous partner organizations with different business semantics. Web services are widely regarded as having the potential to provide a suitable platform for the implementation of e-business applications, however so far only limited attention was paid to Web services design. The aim of this project is to develop a design method suitable for developing a comprehensive and consistent set of Web services for a given application domain and to verify this method using a prototype implementation.
