    Abstract

    In a service composition, interaction behaviour specifies an information exchange protocol that must be complied with in order to guarantee interoperability between services. Interaction behaviour can be designed using a top-down design approach utilising high abstraction levels to control its design complexity. However, current interaction design concepts that merely represent interaction mechanisms supported by communication middleware force designers to design interaction behaviour close to an implementation level. Such design concepts cannot be used for designing interaction behaviour at high abstraction levels. Designers need an interaction design concept that is able to model interactions in an abstract way. In this paper we present such a design concept called abstract interaction. We show the suitability of our abstract interaction concept for designing interaction behaviour at high abstraction levels by comparing it to BPMN interaction concept in an example.
