Review - WS-BPEL 2.0 Beginners Guide

Few weeks back I started reading WS-BPEL 2.0 Beginner’s Guide. So, I thought I should post my review on the blog. As the name of the title suggests, this book is for the beginners who are new to BPEL and just started learning the concepts of BPEL. It is written by Matjaz Oracle Ace Director, java Champion and Denis Weerasiri (Ex WSO2 Enginner and PhD).

I would say the authors of this book have done a great job by keeping it simple and easy to learn yet explaining all the concepts in detail. BPEL is not a programming language but still its little complex to understand. All the fundamentals, basics and concepts of BPEL are very well covered in this book from structure and syntax of the BPEL to the different types of activities and business processes. Steps by step BPEL process creation is explained along with well documented screenshots. You can easily create a sample service, deploy it and test it. Guess what even the deployment steps are also explained.

You can test your knowledge , how much you have understood by answering the quiz at the end of each chapter. There are also number of use cases that you can implement based on the understanding you have developed after reading the book.

I would really recommend this book for all the beginners wanted to learn BPEL. Even though, the name suggests the book is for beginners, but even the experts can also use this book for reference.

Hope you all benefits from reading this book.

Happy Learning !!!
