Industry Standard: Integration Imperative

“Before BPEL, there were various enterprise application integration (EAI) technologies and proprietary business process management (BPM) technologies,” explains Shaffer. “People were able to build connected applications, but it was expensive, complex, and proprietary.”

In December 2000, Microsoft published XLANG, an XML business process language used in Microsoft BizTalk Server for orchestrating applications and XML Web services. Three months later, IBM published Web Services Flow Language (WSFL), an XML language for the description of Web services as part of a business process definition. IBM designed WSFL to be part of the Web service technology framework, relying on existing standard specifications such as SOAP, UDDI, WSDL, and XMLP.

In August 2002, IBM, Microsoft, and BEA released the first public draft of the Business Process Execution Language for Web Services (BPEL4WS) specification, which combined the ideas of the WSFL and XLANG specifications. In April 2003, the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) issued a call for participation in the BPEL technical committee. In May 2003, Sun and Oracle announced support for BPEL.

이거 OASIS에서 밀고 있는 건가보네요.. (다시 말해 표준중에서 가장 잘나간다..)
WSFL 본게 엊그제 같은데 IBM이 그건 접은건가. 제가 얼마나 기술 동향에 무관심하면
WSFL 이 아직도 엊그제 같은지 모르겠네요 -_-; 약간 반성중.

비즈 토크(BizTalk)에서는 이젠 그럼 BPEL 쓰나보죠?
첨에 비즈 토크 봤을 때 충격이 대단했었는데.. (01년도였던가.)
요즘은 그거 잘 팔리는지 궁금하군요.
