To be able to monitor contracts at contract fulfillment stages is a key ingredient for a reliable, flexible, efficient, realistic and acceptable e-market. In this paper, we explore monitoring requirements of different e-market infrastructures, and define the monitorability of various e-market infrastructure approaches. For avoidance and anticipation of imminent contract violations, and detection and compensation of actual violations, a two-level framework is presented, a reference architecture of the two-level framework is demonstrated finally. © Springer-Verlag 200-1.
