+1 for merging in BPEL support using Twister.

Geir, I'd like to understand the BPEL plans for Agila a bit
more. I'm a co-author of the BPEL spec and have done an impl
of it in IBM (BPWS4J- which was released via alphaworks a while
back). My intuition is that a solid impl of BPEL needs to work
very closely with the Web service layer. AFAIK there hasn't been
that kind of interaction between Agila and the Axis community
yet. Dims and I can easily support/facilitate that!

Matthieu- how does Twister do its SOAP, WSDL etc. stuff? Do
you support non-SOAP bindings? (BPWS4J used WSIF, for example.)

Sanjiva.
