Advanced business applications typically involve well-defined business functions such as payment processing, shipping and tracking, determining new product offerings, granting-extending credit, managing market risk and so on. These reflect commonly standard business functions that apply to a variety of application scenarios. Although such business functions drive transactional applications between trading partners they are completely external to current Web services transaction mechanisms and are only expressed as part of application logic. To remedy this situation, this paper proposes a business-aware Web services transaction model and support mechanisms, which is driven by common business functions. The model allows expressing business functions such as payment and credit conditions, delivery conditions, business agreements stipulated in SLAs, liabilities and dispute resolution policies. It allows blending these business functions with QoS criteria such as security support to guarantee integrity of information, confidentiality, and non-repudiation.
