Quick changes in requirements and opportunities in world market need different levels of cross-organizational collaboration for integrating distributed information systems, information sharing and coordination of organizational processes. Nowadays, Web Services are the most common technology to meet these requirements. Web Services Choreography Description Language (WS-CDL), a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) choreography-based standard, describes how a number of services coordinate to obtain the goal of such collaboration.

This paper presents an execution framework for WS-CDL using software agents. This framework provides the Web Services collaboration layer based on choreography model and automatically of agent generation of WS CDL.
