Subject: [ebxml-mktg] ebpml.org / Business Process Central
http://ebpml.org http://www.ebpml.org/bpel4ws.htm Jean-Jacques excells here. Hats off for superb analysis, quotes, comments and site. My question is - when do we get to stop all this running after cats - and get one coherent approach? Is this so tough?? After all we have the one multimedia processing language: SMIL not three or four of those! I'd like to call for a BPIL Business Process Implementation Language. as a joint collaboration between ebXML/OASIS and W3C - to solve this. No question that we now more than understand the scope, needs, artifacts, and models to be able to write a clear requirements statement. And we also understand enough about XML scripting and designing process languages using so we can have three layers of enriching syntax that's readable and fun to use for: simple - point-2-point throw medium - B2B query/response complex - multi-threaded with decisions. Actually SMIL is a pretty darn good model here! If you design the syntax right using action elements and parameters - it looks clear and simple on the eye, defaults to sensible values, and it parses right. You can hand-code and read SMIL and do quick things with a SMIL engine, or you can use a tool for more fancy needs. Then your modelling tools should be able to read in BPIL and draw pretty diagrams. Allow for "model extension" section in the syntax where you can point to favourite icon and image libaries, default colours, lines sizes and all that 'stuff'. Here's hoping. DW.
