Subject: OASIS Launches BPEL XML.org Online Community

OASIS Launches BPEL XML.org Online Community 

BEA Systems and IBM Sponsor Interactive Web Site for SOA and Web Services
Business Process Standard

Boston, MA, USA; 13 February 2008 -- The OASIS international standards
consortium today introduced a new XML.org online community web site dedicated
to supporting the Web Services Business Process Execution Language (WS-BPEL)
and related specifications. The site, (http://bpel.xml.org), serves as the
official information resource for the WS-BPEL OASIS Standard, which provides a
method for formally describing business processes and business interaction
protocols using Web services. 

"BPEL has become an important standard for Service-Oriented Architectures,"
said Ed Cobb,  VP, Emerging Technology & Standards at BEA. "OASIS has created
this site as a way to enable users, developers, and vendors from around the
world to share information and learn from one another."

All pages on BPEL XML.org are accessible by the public, and users are
encouraged to contribute content. The site features a wiki knowledgebase of
information on using and understanding BPEL. It also includes sections where
readers can post related news, event information, listings for products and
services, links to white papers, case studies, and other resources. Forums that
support interactive discussions and blogs are also featured. 

"Valuable information on BPEL is scattered throughout the Web on a multitude of
web sites from vendors, publications, conferences, and other sources. BPEL
XML.org aims to provide an easily navigable nexus point where people can go to
quickly find the information they need," said Diane Jordan, Program Director
for IBM Emerging Internet Software Standards. "It's also a 'watering hole'
where people working with BPEL can come together to support one another."

BPEL is the newest addition to the XML.org family of web sites devoted to
supporting communities around open standards; other sites include DITA, ebXML,
IDtrust, OpenDocument, and UDDI.
