The basic transaction model has evolved over time to incorporate more complex transaction structures and to selectively modify the atomicity and isolation properties. In this chapter we discuss the application of transaction concepts to activities that involve coordinated execution of multiple tasks (possibly of different types) over different processing entities. Such applications are referred to as transactional workflows. In this chapter we discuss the specification of such workflows and the issues involved in their Execution.
