dc.description.abstractWeb service based workflows provide support for aggregating web services into new higher-level web services, but do not support direct interaction with people. On the other hand, traditional collaboration tools like email or instant messaging do not provide the necessary support for structured business processes. In addition, building or modifying new workflow application with current software tools is expensive and time consuming since it requires customized programming process for the presentation, validations, and required business logic. We introduce Lynx, a new architecture for workflow systems based on Web Services that leverages on current standards and broadly known technologies such as XML, e-mail, BPEL and XForms, to reduce the amount of code and thus the cost and time of developing and maintaining a Web-based workflow application, and interact with human partners via e-mail based forms without requiring a specialized client. We illustrate the usefulness Lynx in a Digital Government scenario.en_US
dc.description.abstractFlujos de trabajo basados en servicios Web proveen apoyo para agregar servicios Web en servicios de más alto nivel, pero no apoyan interacción directa con personas. Por otro lado, herramientas tradicionales de colaboración como correo electrónico o mensajes instantáneos no proveen apoyo para procesos estructurados. Además, desarrollar o modificar nuevas interfases de aplicaciones de flujos de trabajo con herramientas tradicionales es costoso y requiere mucho tiempo por la programación para la presentación y validaciones y por la lógica del proceso requerida. Introducimos Lynx, una arquitectura nueva para sistemas de manejos de flujo basados en servicios Web que se basa en estándares ampliamente conocidos como XML, email, BPEL y XForms, para reducir el costo y tiempo que toma desarrollar y mantener una aplicación de flujo de trabajo, y comunicarse con personas a través correo electrónico con una interfase basada en formularios sin requerir un cliente especializado. Mostramos la utilidad de nuestro método en un escenario de Gobierno Digital.en_US
