I have introduced three business process management languages: BPEL (Business Process Execution Language); Business Process Modeling Language (BPML); and Business Process Specification Schema (BPSS) for ebXML. Last month I covered Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN). Over the next few months, I will discuss some of the major business process management software vendors and their products. Note that none of these descriptions are recommendations of any product. Their intent is only to show the trend toward automatic generation of executable XML-based code using business process management languages.

The current edition of BizTalk is Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004. Extensive training in its use is available online from the Microsoft Web site.1 BizTalk Server 2004 uses the BizTalk Orchestration Designer for business process management, based on Visio.
