In this chapter, we discuss the business process enactment environment of the CrossWork architecture, providing support for network business process enactment and legacy system integration. We first discuss the overall approach to enactment, which consists of global enactment and local enactment, supported by two modules as described in the architecture design (see Chapter 5). Details of the Global Enactment module are discussed in Section 8.2. The discussion of the Local Enactment module follows in Section 8.3. As described in the architecture, enactment is coupled to Legacy Integration. In Section 8.4, we therefore discuss the Legacy Integration module. We conclude this chapter in Section 8.5.
