About WS-BPEL

The WS-BPEL stands for Web Services Business Process Execution Language. It is an XML-based language for formally describing business processes and business interaction protocols.

WS-BPEL 2.0 was approved as an OASIS Standard in April 2007. It defines a model and a grammar for describing the behavior of a business process based on interactions between the process and its partners. The interaction with each partner occurs through Web services interfaces. The WS-BPEL process defines how multiple service interactions with these partners are coordinated to achieve a business goal, as well as the state and the logic necessary for this coordination.
