Web services (WSs) compositions deal with specifiring how to assemble a complex WS system from elementary services. These services can be provided on the Web by third parties as WSs, COTS, or bespoke components. In many cases, using a component "as-is" is very unlikely to occur Components which act as building blocks for the construction of WSs have to be customised in particular ways to meet global application requirements before reuse. A component has to be customised because of for example, incompatibilities between the interfaces of components that need to communicate with one another; need for extra security features, or; blocking unneeded functionality. This paper presents abstractions of methods for WS compositions using Hoare's CSP process algebra. These methods enable customisations and reuse of existing components using a powerful technique known as "wrapping".
