Abstract

Sensor networks are gaining momentum in various fields, notably in industrial and environmental monitoring, and more recently in logistics. The information gathered from the environment (by sensor networks) may influence the execution of workflows, making it difficult to test these systems as a whole. Generally, the tests carried out on the aforementioned systems make use of recorded information in earlier workflow executions. Alternatively, we propose the testing of such workflows by incorporating results obtained from the simulation of sensor network applications, allowing the testing of new workflows, as well as of the changes made to a given workflow by events in the environment. This paper describes a means of integrating existing platforms with the aim of introducing the simulation of sensor networks in workflow testing and execution.
