ActiveBPEL, LLC is an open source software organization that licenses
and distributes the ActiveBPEL? engine technology. The ActiveBPEL
engine is a robust runtime environment that is capable of executing
process definitions created to the Business Process Execution Language
for Web Services (BPEL4WS, or just BPEL) 1.1 specifications.
The ActiveBPEL engine technology is developed and maintained by Active
Endpoints, Inc. (AEI), which also uses the same technology in some of
its commercial products. AEI created the ActiveBPEL open source
project because AEI believes that the open source model is an
effective means through which to foster community interest, education
and development around the BPEL standard.
Key benefits of using ActiveBPEL engine technology include:
Completeness. The ActiveBPEL engine comprehensively implements the
BPEL4WS 1.1 spec including the full complement of BPEL activities,
event handling, exception handling and scope/compensation management.
Industrial Strength. In addition to comprehensive BPEL 1.1 support,
the ActiveBPEL engine includes high-end features like deployment
packaging, process persistence, event notifications and console APIs.
Growth Track. As a distributor of commercial products based on the
ActiveBPEL engine, AEI is committed to the ongoing development of
ActiveBPEL technologies. The ActiveBPEL open source project will
continually benefit from the contributions of both AEI and the
ActiveBPEL community at large.
THE OTHER ONE IS
The MidOffice BPEL Editor (MOBE) is an open-source platform for
process orchestration which executes, monitors, adjusts and terminates
pre-defined processes). The platform is implemented using J2EE
technologies and globally accepted standards like BPEL, XML and SOAP.
With the MOBE, systems can be easily connected, information from
various sources can be made widely available, transactions and the
accompanying processes can be automated from intake straight into the
registration in back office systems and additional functionality can
be easily added by "clicking in" additional modules.
Its benefits are:-
Process orchestration (handled by the MOBE) which executes, monitors,
adjusts and terminates pre-defined processes)
Message routing (handled by the MidOffice Dispatcher)
Usermanagement, security, identification, authentication and
authorization(handled by the MidOffice IAA component)
Systemmonitoring & logging (handled by the MidOffice Monitoring component)
