Who This Book Is For
If you are a software architect, a designer, a software developer, an SOA and BPM architect, a project manager, or a business process analyst who is responsible for the design and development of business processes, composite applications, and BPM/SOA solutions, then this book is for you. You should have a clear grasp of general SOA concepts including business processes and web services, but no prior knowledge of the BPEL language is required.
Business Process Execution Language (BPEL, also known as WS-BPEL) has become the de facto standard for orchestrating services in SOA composite applications. It enables the automation of business processes, reduces the gap between business requirements and applications, and allows better alignment between business processes and the underlying IT architecture. BPEL is an open specification and one of the most important pieces of SOA.
This book provides a fast-paced practical introduction to WS-BPEL, one of the centerpieces of SOA. It covers the most important features of BPEL 2.0 and provides several real-world examples to underline its concepts.
