    General questions, SAP asking.

    Peter Kovgan Newbie

      Hi,
      My name is Peter and I'm working for SAP .

      Jboss Jbpm is great product of such kind and we make our efforts to accommodate this interesting stuff in our new generation business application.

      We have several general questions and I will appreciate any help or helpful link.

      0.(the first question): Could you, please, formalize what standards are actually supported by Jboss BPEL part of JBPM?
      What BPEL version and what WS standards are must to be followed to effectively use your engine? All standards relative information you have will help us.


      1. Does Jboss BPEL part of JBPM support old fashion axis web services?
      Particularly: why web service developed and issued under axis 1.3 does not work in BPEL process(my tests)? Is it difference in wsdl that causes the problem? Is there workaround?



      2. Is it feasible to establish java binding instead soap(xml) binding to those web services that used locally(relative to business process) on Jboss to avoid performance degradation? Is there plan to make such trick possible?

      3. If Axis 1.3 Web Services are not supported now,do you have plans to support them later?

      4. What current status of BPEL part of project? Does it move? Is there active development?

      5. We need some person on your side to ask more questions, because we may have plans to accommodate your product in our new generation business application and so we need some contact.

      Could you help?

      Thanks a lot!

              the conference is keeping us busy, but i'll try to answer in the gaps.

              0. the project aims at supporting versions 1.1 and 2.0 of the bpel standard. internally, the engine adheres to 2.0 semantics. we support 1.1 via xsl transformations and certain runtime provisions to maintain backwards compatibility.

              support for other relevant ws standards such as ws-security and ws-addressing, among others, are provided by the jboss web services stack. see the jboss spec status page for details.

              1. I'm not sure I understand what you mean by old-fashioned axis web services. you should be able to invoke services implemented in axis or any other stack. on the other hand, jboss bpel relies on the standard web services for j2ee model for providing services. you need a stack that implements the ws4ee apis (axis does not).

              if you are experiencing a problem invoking your axis-based service, let us know the full details via our issue tracking system.

                Thanks Alex!

                I have indeed problems trying to invoke axis WS, ant I'll try to describe this issue in details.

                Thanks!
