Open Source BPEL Engine

Project Riftsaw is a WS-BPEL 2.0 engine that is optimized for the JBoss Application Server container. WS-BPEL 2.0 is an XML-based language for defining business processes that orchestrate web services.

Riftsaw is based on Apache ODE and supports the following features:

  • WS-BPEL 2.0 OASIS standard and the legacy BPEL4WS 1.1 vendor specification.
  • JBossWS Native and CXF Web Service stack support.
  • UDDI registration of BPEL endpoints, and Runtime UDDI Endpoint lookup as preview
  • Enterprise quality GWT based BPM console to manage process definitions and instances.
  • High level API to the engine that allows you to integrate the core with virtually any communication layer.
  • JBoss deployment architecture, enabling hot deployment.
  • Compiled approach to BPEL that provides detailed analysis and validation at the command line or at deployment.
  • Short-lived and long-running process executions.
  • Process persistence & recovery.
  • Process versioning.
  • Ant-based deployment.
  • Integrated with the JBoss ESB.
  • Eclipse-based BPEL designer and deployment, supported through JBoss Tools.
  • Runs in JBoss Cluster.
  • A good set of examples to help you get started quickly, including Sun's BPEL Blueprint examples.
