Abstract

In e-Business, agents need to coordinate with each other. Coordination protocols that specify the defining orders of message passing are very important. The scale of e-Business grows with the advancement of technology, and the number of agents involved continues to increase. Specifying the coordination protocols for so many participating agents is a complex task. A coordination protocol composition approach reduces the complexity of specifying such a coordination protocol. It treats coordination protocols as individual parts and composes them to construct the intended protocols. However, existing approaches do not suf-ficiently reduce the complexity when a coordination protocol is composed several times, because too many configurations are required to specify a composition. A new approach is proposed that uses metadata to specify the compositions by specifying only one configuration. It can reduce the number of configurations when a coordination protocol is composed several times.
