  1. A choreography defines the sequence and conditions under which multiple cooperating independent agents exchange messages in order to perform a task to achieve a goal state.

  2. Web Services Choreography concerns the interactions of services with their users. Any user of a Web service, automated or otherwise, is a client of that service. These users may, in turn, be other Web Services, applications or human beings. Transactions among Web Services and their clients must clearly be well defined at the time of their execution, and may consist of multiple separate interactions whose composition constitutes a complete transaction. This composition, its message protocols, interfaces, sequencing, and associated logic, is considered to be a choreography. [WSC Reqs]
