Item description for BPEL Cookbook: Best Practices for SOA-based integration and composite applications development by Markus Zirn Jeremy Bolie...
This book is not just another generic set of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices with only general recommendations and advice: instead it's a unique cookbook that shows you how SOA applications are built using best practices that are proven in 10 real-world scenarios.
The book consists of three sections. The first two sections will inspire you. They showcase real-life projects on BPEL-based integration and development of composite applications. You'll see that SOA is a reality today, learn what successful implementations are like, and how SOA can work for you right now. It will encourage you to take a plunge into the world of services and test-drive SOA yourself. If you are already in the middle of an SOA implementation, these sections will offer you fresh insight into your current approach, help you to deal with specific business challenges, and make sure what you do is in line with the best practice.
The third section will equip you with BPEL techniques to build better SOA applications. These techniques represent the practical implementation of best practice, with code snippets ranging from development to administration of an SOA application. They are generic enough to be applied in any of your existing projects yet specific enough to enable you reap the full benefits from your SOA implementation.

Best Practices for SOA Integration on the Money Nov 17, 2006
The BPEL Cookbook is an excellent practical guide to real-world SOA integration issues. It is not a "Learn BPEL" book, but rather the next step once you learn how to develop in BPEL. It addresses various types of issues that one needs to consider when developing BPEL processes. Chapter 3, "Building the Service Value Chain", addresses the core of building a SOA architecture that the business process must be standardized and documented. While a couple of chapters are Oracle BPEL centric, the rest of the chapters address generic issues of any BPEL implementation. In particular, Reliable Messaging, Web Services Invocation Framework (WSIF), building dynamic BPEL processes, and centralizing logging and error handling. For those using Oracle BPEL, chapter 5 shows how to use the Worklist API to build a rich Internet application. And chapter 2 shows how to integrate PeopleSoft CRM with Oracle eBusiness Suite.
I'm completly disapponited Nov 10, 2006
The book talks about BPEL in a way expecting that your a BPEL GURU, I brought this book to learn BPEL, not to hear how other people used it.
Jump Start your SOA development with Ora BPEL Oct 10, 2006
I wish this book was release a few months before as it would have saved me a lot of time and effort, with its real life examples for BPEL process implementations its a great book to have for anyone who is a new or regular user of OraBPEL.
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.
Useful Addition to developers bookshelf Oct 5, 2006
This book, a collection of real world BPEL patterns is a must for any budding or experienced BPEL developer. My company are a software development company specialising in SOA solutions. We have deployed a number for successful SOA projects with BPEL, running on the Oracle BPEL engine, being the cornerstone technology on these projects. This book, along with associated tutorials, has been a key factor in achieving this success - giving us a headstart for some of the key patterns you will need in any BPEL project. It has saved us many days in our R&D lab by pointing us to the code we require for standard tasks required in our BPEL process - these patterns are an excellent addition to any BPEL teams developer standards and guidelines. The book is intuitive to follow, leading the developer you through cases with workable examples that you can build and deploy in your own environment.
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.
Very useful for the Architects who are architecting SOA solution using Oracle BPEL Process Manager Sep 28, 2006
Many of our clients are migrating from traditional Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) to the standard based SOA. This book has ten real-world case studies, which helped me to architect the solutions. Sometimes I use this book as best practices of Oracle BPEL-PM . 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).
