Comparing WS-BPEL 2.0 to Windows Workflow Foundation (WF)


WS-BPEL is very much a subset of what can be represented using WF.  Think of WF as a "graph of activities" that can be transformed to virtually any workflow standard.    I'll try to post a similar comparison between WS-BPEL 2.0 and XPDL 2.0 later this week.
