A few days back, WSO2 has released carbon feature packs which allow users to integrate various functional components into their existing WSO2 products. I blogged about plugging in service hosting components into ESB while we were preparing for carbon release. With the carbon feature packs, now it is much more easier to add the functionalities what you want.
WSO2 BPS provides the facilities to execute business processes written using the WS-BPEL standard. BPEL feature pack enables the business process management inside your WSO2 WSAS or ESB instances.
Let's see how BPEL features can be added to WSO2 WSAS or ESB.
Install WSO2 WSAS-3.0.1 or WSO2 ESB-2.0.1
We are hoping to install BPEL features into WSAS or ESB. Therefore, download BPEL feature pack from here.
Unzip the downloaded feature pack into a directory in your file system (suppose it is $BPEL_feature_pack_home)
You will see two sub directoris inside the extracted zip file, plugins and repository.
Go to $BPEL_feature_pack_home/plugins/ directory and copy all the jars to WSAS_HOME/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/plugins/ directory. (WSAS_HOME is the root directory of your WSO2 WSAS instance)
Then, go to $BPEL_feature_pack_home/repository directory and copy the contents to WSAS_HOME/repository.
Restart WSO2 WSAS and access management console. You will see the BPEL features shown in the left menu as follows.
Thats it. We have installed BPEL features into WSAS. You could follow the same steps to install BPEL features into WSO2 ESB.
