Why Orchestration? ??? To achieve a business goal, you often need more than one service… Which to use, in which order, how to use them? © Tammo van Lessen , Frank Leymann

What is BPEL? Business Process Execution Language 7/02 IBM & MS, 5/03 +BEA+SAP+Siebel, 4/07 OASIS Standard High‐level programming language Recursive Model BPEL has native support for Long running processes Scalability Concurrency Message and instance correlation Fault handling Compensation based recovery Phoenix behaviour Most important: BPEL is standard and supported the most important  vendors. Defined Execution Semantics Abstract Processes (protocols, “views” on internal processes) © Tammo van Lessen 15

What is BPEL not? Common Misconceptions “BPEL is block‐structured only and therefore not  usable for business users” “BPEL does not support multiple transport protocols” Look at WSDL “BPEL interactions are only synchronous” Look at WSDL “Look at this ugly XML, business people won’t  understand this cumbersome stuff” Not meant to be hand‐written, use tools! BPEL is not a modelling notation © Tammo van Lessen 16

BPEL’s Foundation Web Services WSDL 1.1 – abstract part (concrete part ‐> ESB) (SOAP) (WS‐Addressing) Flow Control Block structured (nested blocks) Graph‐based flows (using <flow>) Data Model W3C XML Schema 1.0 XML InfoSet XPath 1.0 XSLT 1.0 © Tammo van Lessen 17

BPEL Concepts: Variables & Partner Links Variables Shared variables, statically typed via WSDL messages, XSD elements or  XSD types “Global” process variables and “local” scoped variables Partner Links / Partner Link Types Partner Links define “contract channels” between partners Mutual call‐back dependency Associates interfaces (pTs) with roles Partner Links define which partner takes which role Key concept to enable asynchronous messaging! Role 1 / myRole Role 2 / partnerRole “I expect from my partner an implementation of this!” portType portType © Tammo van Lessen 18

BPEL Concepts: Fault Handling & Compensation Fault Handling Like in Java, enables alternative execution paths Can trigger compensation Compensation ACID Transactions are not applicable when dealing with  long running processes Compensation‐based recovery Compensation Handler can reverse the work performed by an  already completed scope Compensation Handler is “installed” after successful execution of a  scope Compensation can only be triggered by  fault/compensation/termination handler of the enclosing scope © Tammo van Lessen 19

BPEL Concepts: Fault Handling & Compensation © Tammo van Lessen 20

BPEL Concepts: Data Manipulation (Strong type system) No explicit data flow Assigning variable values By receiving a message from a partner service By invoking a partner service and storing the result into a  variable Copying (parts) of variables into other variables <assign> Drawbacks: Quite cumbersome, requires often XSLT Look at E4X and BPELJ © Tammo van Lessen 21

BPEL Concepts: Modelling Styles Block structured modelling Nesting of structured activities Use of <flow> activity for parallelism Graph based modelling <flow> activity with links t1 t2 Transition conditions & join conditions j Dead‐Path‐Elimination Acyclic graph to ensure sound execution  semantics Loops can be realized with <while> /  <repeatUntil> / <forEach> Not supported by Sun & Oracle! © Tammo van Lessen 22
