We seek to elevate autonomic computing from infrastructure to process level. Different aspects of autonomic computing – self configuring, self healing, self optimizing and self aware are studied for Autonomic Web Processes (AWPs) with the help of a supply chain process scenario. Existing technologies and steps needed to shorten the gap from current process management systems to AWPs are studied in this paper. The behavior of AWPs is controlled by policies defined by users. Sympathetic and parasympathetic policies are introduced to model short and long term policies. A key advantage for elevating autonomic computing to a process level is that the trade-offs can be more evident because the process components map more readily to business functions.


This paper was presented at the third International Conference, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, December 12-15, 2005.
