This paper describes an object -based workflow paradigm to support long and short duration transactions in a mobile E-Business environment. This paradigm combines the ConTract Model of Wachter and Reuter and Meyer’s design by contract approach. Also issues related to relaxing the ACID, local and global serializability properties of transactions, and mobile-host dependencies are considered. We also describe how Eiffel ,UML and i Contract (Java design by contract) can support the workflow paradigm.
