UN/CEFACT´s Modeling Methodology (UMM) is a well accepted and formal<br> notation to analyze and design B2B business processes. In a service oriented architecture<br> (SOA) environment process specification languages like the Business Process<br> Specification Schema (BPSS) are used to configure B2B information systems. However,<br> mappings from UMM models to BPSS process specifications currently exist just<br> on a conceptual level. This results in a gap between defined B2B processes and BPSS<br> configurable e-commerce systems. Thus, a model driven code generation of BPSS<br> descriptions is required. In this paper we present a technical implementation of a<br> transformation engine that generates BPSS process specifications from a UMM model<br> represented in the XML Metadata Interchange (XMI) language. This implementation<br> bridges the gap mentioned above. It has been used in the EU project GILDAnet to<br> generate BPSS descriptions from logistic processes modeled in UMM.
