I've been searching for a good example of how to publish a Web Process Service (WPS) on the GeoServer platform. The page where you'd think they'd document this process is actually pretty thin.

There's some documentation on implementing an OWS service, but I am unsure what the conceptual and implementation overlap is between OWS and WPS in GeoServer.

Is anyone aware of a good example of implementing a WPS on GeoServer?

I had the following discussion with Andrea on the user's list a while back but I haven't had the time to follow it up (or document it as I promised) as I still have bugs in my code to fix.

Thank you for the link to the discussion. I am however still struggeling with this. Is there maybe any new info anyone can provide me with, surronding this? Is there a good GeoServer dev blog somewhere out there? – user4021 Aug 23 '11 at 12:22

It appears that Geoserver published a guide on how to implement a WPS. It can be found here.
