We propose a meta-meta framework architecture for supporting the behavior based integration of two business processes. The meta-meta level provides basic integration operators to the system administrator to create integration options for specific domains. Based on semantic relationships between nodes of two business processes these integration options are executed and transform parts of the business processes. The outcome of the model transformation is an integrated business process. The main advantage of this framework is the support of integration on multiple levels of varying domain independence as supported by the Model Driven Architecture.

Keywords:Behavior based integration, business process.
