Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0161468A2] A method of controlling data processing operations in a data processing system, preferably consisting of a plurality of spatially separate system components connected via a data transmission medium, comprises the following steps: reception of a data processing request for the execution of a data processing process, selection of a process flow description which defines the flow of the data processing process by a sequence of function modules and control modules and corresponds to the received data processing request, execution of the data processing process by calling the function modules and control modules in accordance with the process flow description, where a function module in each case is a self-contained, preconfigurable unit for the execution of data processing operations in the data processing system and a control module in each case specifies the linking of the function modules to one another.
