Workflow Standard - Interoperability Wf-XML Binding Document Number WFMC-TC-1023
This document represents a specification for an XML language designed to model the data transfer requirements set forth in the Workflow Management Coalition’s Interoperability Abstract specification (WFMC-TC-1012) . This language will be used as the basis for concrete implementations of the functionality described in the abstract in order to support the WfMC’s Interface 4 (as defined by the workflow reference model ).

This paper distinguishes, at a high level, the differences between workflow engines and simple trigger routines. Its main function is to clarify the segmentation between autonomous and embedded workflow deployment.
Paper - Events
David Hollingsworth, ICL A&TC. 11 pages, WinWord. April 99.
This document contains a proposed approach for classifying and handling the processing associated with Events. It includes proposals for extensions to I/Fs 1, 2/3 and 4 (and potentially audit data which may be associated with particular event occurrences). It builds upon the proposals originally made by Steve Dworkin (May 1998) and earlier draft notes from Klaus Dieter Kreplin, Dave Holllingsworth and Mike Anderson.
Paper - A
Common Object Model
Document Number - WfMC-TC-1023, by David Hollingsworth, ICL A&TC. March 99. 16 pages, WinWord.
This document describes the current status of the WfMC standardization program and identifies the current work on object related standards which includes interface bindings for both OLE Automation and OMG/IDL objects. The scope of the current Reference Model is discussed, plus possible extensions to support a lower granularity component architecture, internal to the workflow enactment service, as a complement to existing work focused on the service functions provided at the boundary of a workflow enactment service. This is postulated on the basis of defining a common underlying object model which can be mapped to the two important component architectures emerging in the industry, the OMG object architecture and services and the ActiveX/DCOM architecture.
