    Oracle BPEL Process Manager

    BPEL stands for Business Process Execution Language which is utilized to specify behavior of various business process based on Web Services. It is a language based on the XML platform, which enables task sharing with the help of web services among various enterprise solutions. BPEL helps to reduce complexity and cost of business processes by integrating discrete services series into an easy process flow.

    Now, Oracle BPEL Process Manager is from the family of Oracle Fusion Middleware. It helps to develop and deliver Service Oriented Architecture or SOA quickly. The main components of BPEL Process Manager are:
    • BPEL Server
    • BPEL Console
    • BPEL Designer (Eclipse or JDeveloper)
    • Database

    The following diagram represents the architecture of BPEL Process Manager

    BPEL Process Manager Features:

    BPEL Process Manager uses BPEL standards for designing, deployment, monitor and administering processes. It meets up with various web service standards such as WSDL, SOAP and XML like BPEL. You can initiate exception management and fault handling both at the time of designing an application or during runtime. Event timeouts, parallel processing and notifications are some of the important features of BPEL Process Manager. You may also run compensation mechanism for situations that require implementation of lengthy transactions. It automatically maintains states of lengthy processes in the database. BPEL Process Manager undertakes management, administration, version control etc. along with maintaining reliability and scalability of processes.

    BPEL Process Manager supports installation on various operating systems and can be easily integrated with different types of application servers such as BEA WebLogic, JBoss, Oracle Application Server etc. It also provides support in sensors, notifications, worklists, transformations, technology adapters, third-party adapters etc. for JDeveloper BPEL Designer. BPEL Process Manager may also be integrated with other applications such as Oracle Workflow, Oracle Business Activity Monitoring, Oracle APEX Integration InterConnect and Business To Business Oracle Application Server Integration.

    Designing BPEL Processes with BPEL Process Manager

    BPEL Process Manager can be used to design BPEL processes graphically by using two types of designers, namely,
    1. Eclipse BPEL Designer and
    2. Jdeveloper BPEL Designer environment.
    All you need to do to design such processes is to drag and drop some elements or activities. You may have to edit properties for all such dropped elements. All your time that would have been wasted in writing code for the same is saved. You may use external services, wizards etc. to integrate various services with the process. It is very easy to develop and maintian BPEL processes as developed processes can be deployed drectly to BPEL console.

    Integration of IDE with Jdeveloper BPEL Designer is very useful for reducing coding tasks and complexities as all the features of Oracle Jdeveloper to design, code, debug, test, profile, tune and deployment are integrated with declarative and visual development approach. This simplifies even the complexiest task. Moreover, the applications or processes of Jdeveloper BPEL Designer are portable and can be used or modified anywhere.

    Eclipse BPEL Designer is used to create web sites, Enterprise JavaBeans, C++ Programs etc. and is closely integrated with Eclipse platform. Features of Eclipse such as it’s capability to program enterprise tools and applications is made easy with frameworks and useful building blocks of an Eclipse BPEL Designer.

    Again, Processes that are designed with Eclipse BPEL Designer can also be used with various BPEL servers as it uses standard BPEL Designer characteristics.
