I’ve mentioned REST-based BPM frequently on this blog and was able to express my ‘frustrations’ at IntalioCon earlier this year.
‘To build a true BPM as a Service ecosystem that leverages the web and provides value to business and IT, many services must be made available through REST‘
The madgreek recently posted a good piece on open source SOA.
There has been recent debate about BPEL on the blogs. BPEL is a tool for WS-* orchestration for enterprise integration. The realm of the enterprise architect. But BPM isn’t software engineering.
I continue to be excited about BPM and REST-based services. The use of links that kinda auto-magically determine the process trajectory at run-time rather than being coded into the process before hand is, I think, a new dimension to what we are currently doing with BPMS.
