From the Publisher
Markus Zirn is a Senior Director of Product Management for Oracle Fusion Middleware. In this role he heads the Strategic Customer Program, where he works with Oracle's leading and most innovative middleware customers. He has been part of the Enterprise Software industry for more than 10 years, including roles as Vice President of Product Marketing and part of the founding team of QUIQ and as a Management Consultant of Booz Allen & Hamilton's Silicon Valley High Tech Practice. Markus' passion for Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and BPEL stems both from practical experience designing and optimizing business processes as part of process reengineering projects and from being part of the advent of "software as a service" before web services became mainstream. He holds a Masters of Electrical Engineering from the University of Karlsruhe and is an alumnus of the Tripartite program, a joint European degree from the University of Karlsruhe, Germany, the University of Southampton, UK, and ESIEE, France.
Harish Gaur has more than 10 years of experience in the enterprise software industry. He is currently the Group Product Manager for Fusion Middleware at Oracle.

I like this book because the approach is more real-life examples than theory. Developers with minimum experience in SOA world will be able to leverage this emerging technology very easily.
Even though this book is useful for anybody to understand SOA and BPEL, this is extra useful for the people who are using Oracle Fusion Middleware (BPEL Process Manager).
All of the patterns in the book form a useful library of common BPEL scenarios. The pattern related to Dynamic Partner Links gave our development team a great hand in designing BPEL projects for production - on certain projects we use this extensively to give deployment options that are not suited to a web service directory.
The chapter on maintenance and management was invaluable for our Application Administrators. It is always easy to get a Proof of Concept BPEL process working in a lab environment, it is the issues faced when rolling this out across an enterprise that cause often time consuming resolution. This chapter gives many tips and leads you to understand the dehydration store for BPEL instances - a very good start point to build up reference documentation for any Application Administrator who intends to manage BPEL in a live environment.
Chapters on Business Rules (a technology that I feel is essential within SOA and within any BPEL solution) and on Reliable Processing give excellent introduction to the topics a developer will need to understand to build production standard BPEL.
The chapters on Rich Application UI and Building BPEL proc on the fly raises interesting ideas that have certainly triggered design innovations in our team. The WSIF chapter is very useful as a reference and includes many examples of techniques for what you will need within your toolkit.
Altogether an excellent addition to any developers bookshelf, but of particular necessity to anyone intending to use Oracle SOA tools to develop applications.
It is an excellent book for someone new to the Oracle BPEL as well as gives excellent tips/ideas to experienced users in areas of :
- Managing an Oracle BPEL Production environment
- Using BRE rules engine for rule segregation
- Building Dynamic BPEL processes
- and Enriching the workflow applications.
I would have also liked to see some usage tips for Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) and BPEL integration to real time application reporting through BAM.
Overall a comprehensive BPEL book with great amount of experience "cooked" into it.
