Contract INRIA CREATE February 2007 - August 2011
Activedoc is funded by Région Bretagne, supporting the ANR Docflow project. It started in February 2007, for 18 months, and can be extended twice for 18 months. In addition to the Docflow program, it grants funding to study composite web services in a quantitative way. The fundamental models proposed in Docflow will be a starting point. For instance, developing methods to compose the Quality of Service of different web services is a difficult problem if one wants realistic values which are not too imprecise. Methods to elaborate and use contracts between heterogeneous services would thus be simplified.
