Abstract

This report summarizes the results of a hands-on survey on Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) execution engines.BPEL is one of the most promising new languages intended for automatic business process execution.BPEL supports implementation of both intra- and extra enterprise processes.The form of BPEL most often associated with the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is extension called WS-BPEL (Web Services BPEL, formerly aka BPEL4WS).In this research we installed several competing commercial and non-commercial execution platforms and installed and executed a predefined business process on them.Following areas were evaluated: installation, process creation, and process activation.The results showed that the commercial engines are on quite similar level in terms of these criteria.The range of quality and applicability was much wider in the non-commercial engines.However, best of the breed non-commercial engines are a serious option when selecting engine for professional purposes.
