WS composition coordination

Sri Nagabhirava discusses the orchestration and choreography of Web services composition coordination.

My question is about service composition. The two ways to do WS composition from a coordination point of view are centralized and distributed. My understanding is orchestration is equivalent to centralized and choreography is equivalent to distributed. Am I correct? Please explain.
That's right. Web services are atomic in nature and both orchestration and choreography deals with the interaction between Web services. Orchestration deals with coordinating Web services to form a composite Web service and the interactions within the composite Web service occur in a centralized manner resulting in a higher form of executable. Choreography deals with peer-to-peer interaction of Web services without any need for orchestration and occurs in a distributed manner.
