Subject RE: ODE 1.2 Release
Date Thu, 10 Jul 2008 21:10:48 GMT

I saw the announcement of the new release on your homepage last week, but couldn't find any
upgrade instructions. 
Can we simply replace the WAR file in Tomcat, redeploy Ode and put the config files back?
Or do we need any database or config updates?

Maybe its nice to post the answer to this in a general place so other people are encouraged

Onderwerp: ODE 1.2 Release
Hi all,

Most of you probably already know but just in case... :)

The Apache ODE community is proud to announce its latest 1.2 release that
includes many new features, improvements and bug fixes. Apache ODE is a
WS-BPEL compliant web services orchestration engine. It organizes web
services calls following a process description written in the BPEL XML
grammar. Another way to describe it would be a web-service capable workflow

Highlights of this release:

  * External variables: variables used in a process are not opaque to the
outside world anymore. You can map them to a simple database table and
manipulate them directly.
  * Support for the WSDL HTTP binding. We've also added a few extensions,
allowing the invocation of REST-style web services.
  * Advanced endpoint configuration which, thanks to the integration with
Apache Axis2, enables WS-Security and WS-RM support.
  * A long list of small fixes and improvements for best-of-breed stability,
performance and usability.

In addition to these new features, Apache ODE provides the following

  * Side-by-side support for both the WS-BPEL 2.0 OASIS standard and the
legacy BPEL4WS 1.1 vendor specification.
  * Supports 2 communication layers: one based on Axis2 (Web Services http
transport) and another one based on the JBI standard (using ServiceMix).
  * High level API to the engine that allows you to integrate the core with
virtually any communication layer.
  * Hot-deployment of your processes.
  * Compiled approach to BPEL that provides detailed analysis and validation
at the command line or at deployment.
  * Management interface for processes, instances and messages.
