BEPL Orchestration Demo

As everyone I'm sure has heard, we've released a special preview of NetBeans 5.5 with Java EE 5 support to go out with the Sun Java System Application Server 9 Beta. What you may not know is that this contains something very new and very cool - the Enterprise Pack. This is basically the BEPL, UML, and SOA modules from Java Studio Enterprise integrated into NetBeans IDE. Pretty impressive, huh?

But what, you ask, is BEPL?

As usual, I have no idea. I just ferret out other people's work and present it on my blog. Here's a quick description from their web page:

Web Services Orchestration - Author, build, deploy, and test BPEL4WS 1.1 processes. Includes BPEL runtime engine integrated with Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 9 Beta, installed and fully configured to work with the IDE; advanced visual and source editor with support for round-trip engineering; support for process debugging and test runs integrated in the IDE. Watch the video introducing the Orchestration Designer.

And of course, it wouldn't be a flog without a video demo. It's a bit long so I suggest you get a cup of coffee first.

Watch the video introducing the Orchestration Designer.

you meant BPEL, right? ;-)

I agree that this is an exciting addition, and I am looking forward to a host of BPEL Mashups.

John, I also didn't know this before... but BPEL is a subset of SOA so it's not like we have a BPEL and SOA modules but we support SOA by having a BPEL designer :) At least I think it's this way.

Actually in NetBeans Enterprise Pack 5.5 preview we are laying down the basic building blocks for building loosely coupled composite applications for SOA. BPEL Designer is just one of the key building blocks....look for sophisticated maaper/assignment editors, transformation, and multiple binding types coming very soon...in short full featured composite application building....as you say John..."Let the games begin" cheers charles beckham
