    Web services are currently used by organizations to share their knowledge over the network and facilitate business to-business collaboration. However, combining Web services to satisfy user requests is a complex process. Workflow patterns are widely used for Web service composition to allow the specification of composite services. In this paper, the performance evaluation and analysis of workflow patterns is presented. We use both (max, +) algebra and Petri Nets as formal modeling tools to describe the behavior of workflow patterns and analyze their properties and performances. A real case study is worked out to represent and study the performances of integrated workflow patterns.
