11 April 2007


This document describes resources related to version 2.0 of the WS-BPEL specification (OASIS Standard), including the principal prose document, XML schemas, and five XML namespaces. It also contains a directory of links to related resources using the Resource Directory Description Language (RDDL) 2.0. WS-BPEL version 2.0 has been produced by members of the OASIS Web Services Business Process Execution Language (WSBPEL) TC.

Namespace URI Versioning Policy

It is the intent of the OASIS WS-BPEL Technical Committee that the WS-BPEL v2.0 namespace URIs will not change arbitrarily with each subsequent revision of the corresponding WSDL or XML Schema documents but rather change only when a subsequent revision, published in conjunction with a Committee Specification, results in non-backwardly compatible changes from a previously published Committee Specification.

Under this policy, the following are examples of backwards compatible changes that would not result in assignment of new namespace URIs:
