We present a compositional construction of Web Services, using Reo and Constraint Automata as the main glue" ingredients. Reo is a graphical and exogenous coordination language based on channels. We propose a framework that, taking as input the behavioral description of services (as Constraint Automata), their WSDL interfaces, and the description of their interaction in Reo, generates all the necessary Java code to orchestrate the services in practice. For each Web Service, we automatically generate a proxy that manages the communication between this service and the Reo circuit. Although we focus on Web Services, we can compose different kinds of service-oriented and component technologies at the same time (e.g., CORBA, RPC, WCF), by generating different proxies and connecting them to the same coordinator.
