Subject Agila, Twister and WS-BPEL
Date Tue, 11 Jan 2005 16:08:41 GMT
Hi all,

I'm sending this e-mail as a starter for discussing the donation of
Twister's codebase to the Apache incubator as part of the Agila
project. The goal here would be include WS-BPEL support into Agila.

As it has been discussed before, it would be quite a lot of work to
turn Agila as it is into a WS-BPEL compliant implementation. A
complete discussion can be found following these threads:

After some discussion with Geir, a possible solution could be to
include Twister's codebase in Agila's without absolutely merging the
two. The idea would be to have two separate tools that could integrate
nicely into each other, packaged together under the same name. We
would therefore offer a complete BPM solution.

This solution makes sense as, generally speaking, a workflow engine
and an orchestration engine are more complementary than overlapping
and usually solve different problems. For example Twister could use
Agila to handle worklist management and Agila could use Twister for
service orchestration.

What do you all think about this ?

Cheers,

Matthieu.
