Dflow is a workflow management system which emphasizes easy process specification, automatic recovery, concurrency control and problems due to heterogeneity among processing entities. The Workflow specification language provided by Dflow combines the expressive power of a structural programming language with the recovery capabilities of transaction systems. Dflow tries to solve the problems of automatic recovery in its model and the problems of concurrency control and heterogeneity in its architecture.
