RiftSaw - Open Source BPEL Engine


Welcome to the RiftSaw community project. The RiftSaw project provides an integration of the Apache ODE BPEL engine into the JBoss Application Server, along with enhancements to:

  • integrate with JBossESB,
  • use a JAX-WS compliant web service integration layer, through the use of JBossWS
  • GWT based console


The RiftSaw BPEL engine can be used to execute BPEL processes. Authoring BPEL processes, and deploying them into the JBoss Application Server, can be achieved through the BPEL designer support in JBoss Tools.


On July 22nd, 2009 Burr Sutter presented the first RiftSaw Milestone release during a webinar. If you missed it you can download the slides from here.
