This interactive training is packaged in an easy-to-use format that allows users to progress from BPEL novice to experienced user in a matter of hours and opens up all the business advantages of BPEL without the learning curve users might anticipate. The Cape Clear BPEL training – has up until now only been available as an in-person workshop. By making the training available online and free to view, users can quickly become competent in BPEL design and development through the interactivity and one-stop-shop approach of the training. "The unique combination of video presentations, demonstrations and hands-on exercises make this training course the fastest way to learn BPEL," said James Pasley, chief technology officer for Cape Clear and presenter of the training course. "By putting Cape Clear's BPEL expertise into the browsers of developers and architects, we're giving them a fast track to the business benefits of BPEL, and they can leverage Cape Clear’s BPEL engine to deliver the reliability, scalability and performance that they need to succeed in today’s fast-paced business environment." WS-BPEL was developed and approved by members of the OASIS international open standards consortium. James Bryce Clark, director of standards development for OASIS, commented, "Now that the WS-BPEL OASIS Standard has been ratified, the need for resources that help organizations appreciate the benefits of its use becomes critical. We applaud Cape Clear for making this online BPEL training freely available." Validated by an Intel® benchmarking study designed to test the scalability and performance of Cape Clear’s enhanced Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) engine, Cape Clear 7 is capable of processing 5 million complex and long-running simultaneously active business processes and 37 million transactions in a 24-hour period without compromising performance. With these results, Cape Clear is setting a new performance standard for meeting the needs of mission-critical, on-demand integration projects currently in deployment across enterprise customers in the telecommunications, media, financial services, government, manufacturing, transportation and energy industries.
