Composite web services can be orchestrated either by centralized or decentralized approaches. Centralized approaches have been widely adopted due to easiness in process management. However, there are certain scenarios where decentralized approaches can be better alternatives. We investigate some performance characteristics of different orchestration approaches. We will use the empirical results as a guideline of our future research.
