Hi, We are using Talend for our Data Integration currently. We are also using Oracle SOA product which runs BPEL. I would like to know if there is a way to export the BPEL as a jar file and deploy it in a Talend product (ESB or BPM) and run the same in Talend?
Hi First - regarding to the Talend DI - it won't run any BPEL process. It has no WF engine built in. Talend had as their commercial offering a BPM solution, however I cannot find any reference now. As far I know it was bundled Bonita BPM engine. Apparently they shift focus to BigData what is the raising marked today (and there's a number of stable and usable BPM solutions). Second - the JAR file compiled on the Oracle SOA will run only on the Oracle SOA (and I have bad suspicion that only on the specific version). As far I know the Oracle SOA export is really generating the executable code (depending on the Oracle SOA Suite libraries). I wouldn't be so optimistic about compatibility and portability of the BPEL notations and customized extensions (the same goes for BPMN). In fact - standardized is only the notation, but all the details (service links, QoS, ...) are always product specific. So it is nice how visionaries talk about the portability of the BPM definitions, however - be realistic with your expectations.. Have fun Gabriel
Thanks Gabriel, That was a pretty good answer. Infact in the BPM forum Dietmar did mention that it does not directly import BPEL. It does import the following though: we can only import these formats below but not BPEL directly. * Bonita BPM * BPMN 2.0 * Microsoft Visio 2010 * ARIS BPM 7.x * XPDL 1.0 * jBPM 3.2 Grace and Peace, Sylvester
