The structure of this chapter is as follows. In section 4.2, we investigate the requirements of dynamic business process integration across organizational boundaries. In section 4.3, we compare these requirements with the current state of the art in Service-Oriented Computing more specifically, the Web Service platform. In section 4.4, we present a model to apply the Web Service platform to include support for the requirements found in section 4.2. In section 4.5, we present a draft of an integration picture, showing how the elements of previous sections can be combined in an abstract architecture. We conclude this chapter in section 4.6, with an overview of the main issues and a brief outlook.
