This work studies business artifacts by tackling a limit that we see in the current model, which is: business artifacts are not devised as natural means of coordination in their own right, despite the fact that they have the potential of being natural means of coordination in their own right. Coordination issues are transfered (e.g. by BALSA) to solutions that are already available in the literature on choreography and choreography languages. Instead, we propose to enrich business artifacts with a normative layer that accounts for the social engagements of the parties which interact by using a same business artifact. We explain the advantages, also from a software engineering perspective, and propose an approach that relies on the notion of social commitment.

Abstract

This work studies business artifacts by tackling a limit that we see in the current model, which is: business artifacts are not devised as natural means of coordination in their own right, despite the fact that they have the potential of being natural means of coordination in their own right. Coordination issues are transfered (e.g. by BALSA) to solutions that are already available in the literature on choreography and choreography languages. Instead, we propose to enrich business artifacts with a normative layer that accounts for the social engagements of the parties which interact by using a same business artifact. We explain the advantages, also from a software engineering perspective, and propose an approach that relies on the notion of social commitment.
