To implement smooth mapping from business level process changes to IT level executable languages, a service-oriented integration framework based on business level abstraction was proposed. The unified management and business level abstraction for interface assets of legacy systems were implemented with the support of service bus and metadata; a set of template-based toolkits for smart process design and configuration was also provided, which enabled business users to develop or configure the business process by using the knowledge of business patterns. Finally, an application example of the framework in textile and garment manufacturing industry was provided. By making full use of business patterns, the construction and adjustment of business processes could be simplified, and the configurability of the whole system could be improved as well.
