ActiveBPEL Designer (formerly ActiveWebflow(TM) Professional) will now be
available for free download from the Active Endpoints website as well as for

visual controls, runtime simulation, integrated debugging and 100% standard
BPEL code generation.
"We are very pleased to make the ActiveBPEL Designer freely available to
the IT community," said Fred Holahan, Chairman and co-founder, Active
Endpoints. "The ActiveBPEL Designer is often cited as the best BPEL design
and test environment available today. By providing organizations with free
and easy alternatives for acquiring, using and redistributing this world-class
product, we aim to accelerate the adoption of BPEL."
ActiveBPEL Designer - Visual, Productive, Standard.
ActiveBPEL Designer is an Eclipse Ready environment that includes the
following key features:
* Process Visualization: intuitive, drag and drop diagram editing that
allows users to rapidly construct process diagrams of any complexity.
When process design is completed, users can perform visual runtime
simulation and debugging, significantly reducing QA cycle times.
* High-productivity Instrumentation: high-productivity visual controls
that provide easy access to the most common BPEL related resources.
Users can quickly locate, register and use their WSDL resources; create
reusable BPEL process artifacts (BPELets(TM)); and access a number of
pluggable language environments for advanced data integration, mapping
* Uncompromising BPEL Support: out-of-the-box support for any BPEL 1.1
processes. ActiveBPEL users can easily render diagrams by importing
existing BPEL process definitions, and they can readily generate BPEL
process definitions from any ActiveBPEL diagram. BPEL generated by
ActiveBPEL can be executed by any BPEL 1.1 compliant engine.
"Our early successes with SOA have raised new opportunities and
requirements, particularly in the area of BPEL-based, composite applications,"
said Asit Bhattacharya, Senior Software Engineer, Vodafone Plc. "We knew we
had discovered a world-class BPEL authoring solution as soon as we began using
the ActiveBPEL Designer. It fits right in to our Eclipse tooling framework
and provides an exceptional level of development productivity. The process
simulator alone was of significant value, saving us critical QA time as we
bullet-proofed our applications."
