In this paper, we address the challenge of deriving both, executable WS-BPEL processes and their respective WSDL interface specifications from choreographies written in WS-CDL for business processes in Virtual Organizations (VOs). The major issues hereby are the differences in the vocabulary of WS-CDL and WSBPEL as well as the information gap between a choreography and an executable orchestration. The information gap results from the requirement imposed by the VO environment to establish a

The first issue is addressed with a detailed translation table; the second, more severe one requires the use of a role specific knowledge base. This knowledge base delivers process subsets modeling detailed role internal activities while avoiding their exposure to collaborating roles. The combined solution is a CDL2BPEL algorithm.
