Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) addresses the choregraphy issues related to web services and SOA.
BPEL is used to describes a process, and to coordinates its execution
It can be seen as a set of building blocks that are used to compose a process. Each of these blocks serves a different function. How these blocks are arranged and joined together determines how the process will operate.

For exemple, a travel booking process can involve :
- availability
- customer information collect
- credit card validation
- Booking and confirmation

Each blocks above are independent. BPEL describes how they must be assembled in order to create a complete business process.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
