Subject: RE: [wsbpel] Issue 47 and WS-I BP 1.0

I see a few separate issues/questions connected to the relationship of BP 1.0 and BPEL.
1- Would BP 1.0 be restricting BPEL to the point that some of BPEL's functionality would not be available?
I cannot think of any such restriction off the top of my head.
2- Would the fact that BP 1.0 only addresses the SOAP/HTTP binding imply that also BPEL should be limited to that type of binding?
I don't think that anybody would imply that.
3- Should a BPEL process be offered as a Web service that is BP 1.0 compliant?
My answer would be yes.
3- Would it be fair to limit BPEL use to interacting with BP 1.0 compliant Web services only?
My personal answer would be yes. But I am a member of WS-I, and I understand other people might have different answers.

For the benefit of the non-expert could post a salient example please?  Specifically, a BPEL usage pattern that would not work if BP 1.0 is followed but would work if any WSDL 1.1 portType is allowed.  In other words, is BP 1.0 a restriction on the WSDL artifacts we use or potentially on BPEL itself?

The sections 5.5 and 5.6 in the basic profile (http://www.ws-i.org/Profiles/Basic/2003-08/BasicProfile-1.0a.htm) are devoted to binding aspects but, several major sections including section 4, other sections of 5 address abstract aspects of WSDL, which is a pretty large portion. All those are applicable BPEL IMO.

Most of the BP 1.0 directives are binding related.  BP also forbids outbound operations which BPEL does not use.  Can someone identify a directive in BP 1.0 that actually affects BPEL?
