Microsoft plans to add support for BPEL in Vista's Workflow Foundation (WWF) through a March community technology preview called BPEL for WWF March CP. That CTP will implement the BPEL 1.1 specification currently available from the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS), which oversees the standard. However, the final release of BPEL for WWF will implement BPEL 2.0 and should be released in the last quarter of the year, Microsoft said.

OASIS has approved the BPEL 2.0 specification but is still preparing it for final release, according to its Web site.

Microsoft and IBM combined two competing business process programming languages to form BPEL for Web Services, later shortened to BPEL, several years ago. In April 2003 those companies along with other vendors submitted BPEL to OASIS as a standard.
