This paper presents a framework for modeling Business-to-Business applications. This framework consists of three levels namely strategic, application, and resource, with focus here on the first two levels. The strategic level is about the common vision that independent businesses define as part of their decision to join forces. And the application level is about the business processes that get virtually integrated as result of this common vision. To implement the strategic and application levels, this paper leverages from our earlier two projects referred to as Context-Aware Web Services and Coordination Model for Web Services, respectively. The application of both projects to a Business-to-Business scenario relies on a case-study from the purchasing domain. We also present a prototype implementation of our B2B framework on this domain.
