SOA Solutions Provider Active Endpoints To Support WS-BPEL 2.0

Open Source BPEL Solutions Now Deliver Seamless, Side-by-side Execution Of WS-BPEL 2.0 And BPEL4WS 1.1 Processes

Active Endpoints, provider of SOA orchestration products and services, announced the availability of ActiveBPEL 3.0. The ActiveBPEL product family includes open source and commercial SOA orchestration solutions that are standards-compliant and platform-neutral, forming the foundation for fast, cost-effective business and systems integration. Among other important capabilities, ActiveBPEL 3.0 comprehensively supports the forthcoming WS-BPEL 2.0 standard, which will be officially published early in 2007.

ActiveBPEL 3.0 allows SOA application developers and ISVs to leverage the power of the BPEL 2.0 standard while preserving prior investments in BPEL 1.1 processes. ActiveBPEL 3.0's pluggable architecture complements all SOA IT infrastructures and offers an independent, best-in-class solution for building, testing, deploying and managing BPEL-based applications.

"We are very pleased to see commercial support for the forthcoming WSBPEL 2.0 standard in the new versions of ActiveBPEL Designer and ActiveBPEL Enterprise," said Derek Mathieson, Principal Architect, Workflow and e-Business Applications, CERN. "By allowing us to automatically migrate BPEL 1.1 processes to 2.0 using ActiveBPEL Designer, and by supporting seamless side-by-side execution of BPEL 1.1 and 2.0 processes in ActiveBPEL Enterprise, Active Endpoints is providing CERN all the flexibility we need to transition to the 2.0 standard on our own terms."

Enterprise developers and systems integrators use ActiveBPEL to significantly reduce the time and complexity of implementing SOA applications, from proof of concept to deployment. A large and growing group of businesses now use ActiveBPEL in demanding environments across financial services, government, telecommunications, and other industries. ActiveBPEL is also the embedded, best-in-class BPEL solution for many leading software providers who look to Active Endpoints for competitive advantages when including BPEL in their own products.

In response to input from hundreds of customers and partners, ActiveBPEL 3.0 offers new capabilities including:
• Support for all WS-BPEL 2.0 process constructs and semantics
• Automatic migration of BPEL4WS 1.1 processes to the new WS-BPEL 2.0 standard, preserving users' investments in existing 1.1 processes
• Seamless, side-by-side execution of BPEL4WS 1.1 and WS-BPEL 2.0 processes, allowing phased migration to WS-BPEL 2.0
• Enhanced message routing based on WS-Addressing to streamline and improve the execution of long running processes
• Policy-driven message exchanges based on WS-ReliableMessaging
• BPEL Sub-process execution, allowing process components to be executed within the lifecycle of their invoking processes

"The forthcoming WS-BPEL 2.0 standard represents a critical inflection point for SOA," said Fred Holahan, Active Endpoints' chairman and co-founder. "For the first time, organizations have a broadly adopted foundation upon which to create composite, process-driven SOA applications. In addition to comprehensively supporting the WS-BPEL 2.0 standard, ActiveBPEL 3.0 delivers the advanced capabilities our customers and partners need to power their enterprise-class SOA applications."

The ActiveBPEL 3.0 product suite includes the following:
- ActiveBPEL Engine: a commercial-grade, open source runtime environment for executing BPEL processes. The ActiveBPEL engine is the most widely used BPEL technology available today, delivering commercial-grade BPEL capabilities to the open source community.
- ActiveBPEL Designer: a high-powered, Eclipse Ready design environment that allows information analysts to visually create and test BPEL process flows. The ActiveBPEL Designer includes many advanced features, speeding developers through the tasks of building sophisticated composite applications.
- ActiveBPEL Enterprise servers: enterprise-class BPEL servers that satisfy a multitude of BPEL deployment requirements - from mobile and desktop applications to advanced departmental and enterprise-wide production environments.

ActiveBPEL Designer allows users to create and test BPEL processes, and then deploy those processes to ActiveBPEL Enterprise servers that scale from desktop to data center and meet the most rigorous performance demands.
