    Presentations Overview

    Business Process Execution Language (BPEL)

    This is a followup to last month's talk on Web Services Orchestration. Doron will talk about BPEL. After explaining what it is, and why it's necessary, the talk will provide a high-level overview of the BPEL specification and how it is used in the context of an orchestration solution. The talk will use an example throughout and conclude with a demo.
