English abstract

The paper presents a description of some point of view of different authors related to the failures and exceptions that appear in workflows, as a direct consequence of unavailability of resources involved in the workflow. Each of these interpretations is typical for a certain situation, depending on the authors' interpretation of failures and exceptions in workflows modeling real dynamical systems.

Romanian abstract

Lucrarea prezintă o descriere a unor puncte de vedere aparţinând mai multor autori referitor la eşecurile şi excepţiile care apar în workflow-uri, ca o consecinţă directă a indisponibilităţii resurselor implicate în workflow. Fiecare dintre aceste interpretări este caracteristică unei anumite situaţii, în funcţie de interpretarea pe care o dau autorii eşecurilor şi excepţiilor în workflow-uri care modelează sisteme reale.
