Infoworld has reported that the control of the BPEL4WS web service orchestration specification has moved control to the OASIS standards body.
"The Business Process Execution Language for Web Services (BPEL4WS) specification is expected to be submitted to Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS), Carol Geyer, spokeswoman for OASIS, confirmed.
"We anticipate it will probably be tomorrow and a charter will be submitted tomorrow or maybe Thursday," Geyer said. The proposing companies still are making modifications to the charter for BPEL4WS that they submit to OASIS, she said. "
Perhaps some of the critics claiming too much confusion in the orchestration space will now come around.
Also, I was glad to see OpenStorm mentioned!!
