BPEL in Practice 

Today I found a very nice article about a practical application of BPEL that I cannot hide from you:

"Process Integration of Mobile Farm Machines Using Automatically Generated BPEL Processes.

Increasing IT requirements in agriculture and farming lead to situations where mobile farm machines need to be integrated in the business processes of a farm. Since these processes and the communication partners change with the farm the farm machine works for an adapted process description must be created and used. Due to the strong variability and heterogenity of the partners Web Services and especially BPEL constitute an adequate infrastructure for the generation of such adapted business processes. Starting point for this approach is a BPEL model which serves a a template for automatic creation of an adapted concrete BPEL process."

(cited from Wirtschaftsinformatik 49 (2007) 4, S. 289-294)

The complete text is in German, but it is nevertheless worth reading it. One last citation: What do you think is a farmer doing after he gets out of his bed? Answer: The farmer first configures his IT environment using a software solution. Well done!
