    BPEL, WSBPEL and BPEL4WS

    Agustín Gañan Newbie

      Hello,
      I have a pair of questions to the community,
      Are there any difference between BPEL, WSBPEL and BPEL4WS?
      I'm trying to get a general idea about the state of art but I'm not able to view the differeces.
      What versions of this are implemented in jbpm-bpel.Beta3?

      Thank you all

      Agus

          You can consider them as synonyms. BPEL4WS was the name of the specification in version 1.0 and 1.1, when it was a proprietary document of MSFT, IBM et al.

          After the specification was submitted to OASIS for becoming a standard, it was renamed WS-BPEL. The OASIS technical committee (of which we are part :-) recently approved version 2.0.

          Of the above, we have comprehensive coverage of BPEL4WS 1.1 and partial coverage of WS-BPEL 2.0.

          BPEL is the acronym normally used when you want to refer to the language itself, without regard of version or status as a standard.
