A User-Defined Exception Handling Framework in the VIEW Scientific Workflow Management SystemThe 9th IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC) (2012)
AbstractWith the advances of e-Science, scientiﬁc workﬂow has become an important tool for researchers to explore scientiﬁc discoveries. Although several scientiﬁc workﬂow management systems (SWFMSs) have been developed, their support of exception handling is still limited. In this paper, we introduce our approach of exception handling in the VIEW scientiﬁc workﬂow management system. We propose an exception handling language for scientiﬁc workﬂows based on our workﬂow model. Both syntax and semantics rules of our language are presented. Different exception handling primitives, such as retry, alternative, and repeat, are supported in our language with ﬂexibility for their composition to provide a sophisticated and ﬂexible exception handling mechanism. Moreover, two exception handling algorithms and the architecture design for exception handling in VIEW are also presented.
