Paper on Review of Web Service Specifications for Long-running Conversations accepted at the CONISAR 2014

Paper title: Review of Web Service Specifications for Long-running Conversations

Despite the growing number of standards and interest in web services, support for implementation of long-running conversations is inadequate. Most real world business transactions typically consists of series of business activities. Such transactions originate from different sources which have multiple web services running to achieve a specific result. In this paper, we provide an overview of long-running conversation properties, and a review of relevant web service specifications. Our analysis indicates that WS-Coordination and WS-BusinessActivity specifications are the best option for implementing long-running conversations using web services.
