Hi Folks,

I am giong to write my first BPEL process. I have gone throuhg different websites and following is my understanding. please comment.

To create a BPEL process I need to have:

Already available web services
BPEL runtine or BPEL engine or WS Orchestration Plate form.
Any BPEL designing tool, like oracle BPEL desiner
Any BPEL deployment tool.
Knowledge of XPath (I dont knwo why I need to have a good knowloedge of XPath )

Anywasy I would highly appreciate any comprehensive reply on this.

The WebServicesFaq links to a couple BPEL implementation, and a few introductory articles.

E.g., it links to the BPWS4J implementation, which -although outdated now- works fine, and is about the easiest way to get started with BPEL. It requires nothing more than a servlet container, and includes example web services.

There's also a link to Apache ODE, which is another BPEL implementation as a web app, and which is still being developed (BPWS4J is not).
