The Web Service Choreography Interface (WSCI) is an XML-based interface
definition language that describes the flow of messages exchanged by a
Web service participating in choreographed interactions with other

WSCI describes the dynamic interface of the Web service participating
in a given message exchange by means of reusing the operations defined
for a static interface. WSCI works in conjunction with the Web Service
Description Language (WSDL), the basis for the W3C Web Services
Description Working Group. It can also work with another service
definition language that exhibits the same characteristics as WSDL.

WSCI describes the observable behavior of a Web service. This is
expressed in terms of temporal and logical dependencies among the
exchanged messages, featuring sequencing rules, correlation, exception
handling, and transactions. WSCI also describes the collective message
exchange among interacting Web services, thus providing a global,
message-oriented view of the interactions.

The complete Submission request, including the submitted materials and
specifications, is publicly available at:
