A workflow is an activity involving the coordinated execution of multiple tasks, performed by different processing entities. From such a workflow specification, an executable workflow application can be generated. However, this workflow may not behave correctly in the presence of workflows executing in parallel or when a workflow must rollback. Here we investigate transaction mechanisms to synchronize parallel executions and to allow rollback of failed executions. An architecture based on enhancing middleware is described which forms part of a workflow project.
