BPEL 2.0 is out as an OASIS standard

In particular, our customers see BPEL 2.0 as enabling a smooth evolution path from BPEL 1.1 and are excited to see several key process orchestration requirements now included in the standard," said Don Deutsch, vice president Standards Strategy and Architecture, Oracle.
