Why WPS?

2007-08-16T14:41:49Z in web, industry

There are no less than five presentations on web processing services (OGC WPS) at the upcoming FOSS4G conference. I'm looking forward to asking these people what exactly WPS does that can't be done with straight HTTP POST and the 202 (Accepted) status code. What exactly does one gain here by abstracting away the Web?
