Abstract

This paper designs and implements a scientific workflow engine that follows the BPMN 2.0, enriching existing research on scientific workflow engine specification and theory. The engine is implemented using the Java language and adopts a layered architecture, including a process virtual machine, a BPMN model engine and a scientific workflow model engine from the bottom up, which has good scalability and is able to provide powerful support for the design and operation of scientific workflows so as to process scientific research data more efficiently.
