Most discussion on the current hot topic of e-commerce focuses either on the relationship between the customer and the supplier or on the security of these interactions.

Within this infrastructure, techniques have been developed to aid in the location and composition of services, manage the distributed workflow process and aid in maintaining contractual obligations.
