Great!!!
But I've a question, How WSO2 supports or would support services choreography ?

I know that a specification of services choreography isn't executable because only deals external behavior of partticipants from a global view point, but this specification can be mapped to BPEL and, by example, to generate stubs for implement processes internal (with BPEL). Even so, How to make sure a services choreography at execution of all (particpants, interactions, ...) into WSO2?

Hi Alfonso,
First of all, really sorry, I missed your comment.
No, WSO2 BPS is powered by Apache ODE and its architecture supports for service orchestration.
I think, we can mimic the behavior of service choreography via BPEL (I haven't tried it). But I think it won't bring the benefits which can be provided by the BPEL engine like compensation, fault handling etc.
Cheers,
Denis

Hi Sourav,

WSO2 BPS is based on WS-BPEL 2.0 specification, and it does not support BPM specification.
