Individual business processes often work together in a choreography to achieve a common goal. One way to specify such a choreography is BPEL4Chor. BPEL4Chor extends WS-BPEL by allowing to define the behaviour of individual processes and their interconnection to other processes. Currently, BPEL4Chor does not include any concept of distributed fault handling in choreographies. On process level WS-BPEL defines an elaborate fault handling mechanism. However, there is no distributed fault handling in choreographies. A choreography's designer has to implement the handling of faults by hand. In order to overcome this shortcoming the concept of choreography scopes, which span several processes, is introduced to BPEL4Chor. Handling of faults in these choreography scopes is performed by a coordinating entity.
