Business Process Execution Language

BPEL is a widely accepted (OASIS) standard for handling workflows. In the context of OGC, workflows are produced through "service chaining", which can be performed in a number of ways, one of which is orchestration of a service chain including one or more Web Processing Services (WPS) using a BPEL engine. Modern scientific applications, such as scientific workflows, increasingly rely on services, such as job submission, data transfer or data portal services and messages. Such services are referred to as Grid services.
