Subject: Re: [wsbpel] Call for primer ideas

I am a long-time observer of the WS-BPEL TC and author of two books that 
have provided tutorials for previous versions of BPEL. Subsequent to 
discussions with Diane, Ron, and James, my TC status has just this morning 
been changed to "member" in order to allow me to contribute editing services 
to the WS-BPEL primer deliverable.

In coordination with OASIS I've received permission from my publisher, 
Prentice Hall, to contribute a chapter from my last book as an official TC 
submission. This document contains a basic introduction to BPEL as well as a 
step-by-step process for deriving a BPEL process definition from existing 
business process documentation. It is further supported by a case study that 
provides on-going reference examples.

This document clearly contains just a subset of what the primer will need to 
cover. It may be useful as a starting point or it may only provide some 
ideas as to how we may want to structure the primer. Either way, we can take 
from it whatever we need. I also have the source files for the diagrams, 
which can be further customized as required.

There may be additional opportunities to repurpose content from my previous 
work. Further information is located at http://www.soabooks.com.

I'm looking forward to working with the TC and others contributing to the

> BPELers,
