>From an Axis point of view, we'll want to at the very least keep an eye on 
this.  WSFL is about linking intermediaries and web services together into 
work flows.  It's out of scope for Axis v1.0 but has relevance to the 
support of intermediaries, etc.  Definitely worth reading.

Subject:        WSFL (Web Services Flow Language) spec released!

FYI: IBM today released the WSFL spec at:
>From the summary: The Web services Flow Language Guide describes how
Web services may be composed into new Web services to support business
processes. Composition comes in two types: The first type allows to
specify the logic of a business process; the second type allows to
define the mutual exploitation of Web services of participants in a
business process. A brief concepts of composition sketch is provided
in an introductory chapter of the document. A detailed discussion of
the metamodel behind composition follows. The language proper is
described and illustrated by code snippets, followed by an XML schema
of the language.

Information about the larger Web services announcement can be
seen at:
There are several white papers etc. along the Resources link.

Happy reading!
