Abstract The integration of software components becomes a more and more important issue in software engineering. Process-oriented approaches should provide automated information processes. Therefore, the software components have to be integrated in a consistent way, i.e., their export interfaces have to be respected by the importing components. Furthermore, the type system of component interfaces has to support a tunable degree of freedom. This allows the insertion of components with interfaces of restricted but sufficient degree of compatibility. In this paper, we develop a concept for consistent and flexible integration of components. We present a process modeling language that combines UML and XML in order to support consistent, flexible, and executable processes. Finally, we provide a formalization of the proposed component type system.
