This paper describes the design of a model as well as an architecture to provide support for distributed advanced workflow transactions. We discuss the application of transaction concepts to activities that involve integrated execution of multiple tasks over different processes. This kind of applications are described as transactional workflows. We also choose to develop a formal framework for a secure, highly available distributed workflow architecture since interworkflow is anticipated as a major supporting mechanism for Business-to-Business Electronic Commerce.
