Transactional CSP Processes

Transactional CSP Processes provides an API through which the application developer can define long-lived transactions. Concurrency and transaction handling are managed by the framework transparently from the application developer. Therefore, we will be demonstrating how a developer would use the framework to define long lived transactions in terms of their activities and composition structure.
