Active Endpoints Announces ActiveVOS 6.1

New release delivers enhanced functionality for BPM developers and users, including new SOA adopters

Active Endpoints announced the general availability of ActiveVOS 6.1, the latest release of the company's all-in-one business process management (BPM) system. ActiveVOS 6.1 has enhanced its offering for business analysts, operations staff and managers while breaking new ground in developer productivity.

By integrating the knowledge gained from production deployments at organizations worldwide, ActiveVOS 6.1 offers new features including:

  • Process Rewind - Process rewind gives organizations unprecedented flexibility in managing running, in-flight processes. Prior releases of ActiveVOS had the ability to retry an activity, a scope or the entire process. ActiveVOS 6.1 adds the ability to rewind a process to a specific activity and redo the work without having to invoke any of the built-in compensation logic. ActiveVOS 6.1 process rewind also maintains an audit log which documents any changes to the process.
  • Breakthrough Developer Productivity - While retaining 100% compatibility with standards, ActiveVOS 6.1 has eliminated the complexity of using services in an application and permits developers to "work as they think."
  • Any-Order BPM Development - In previous systems, developers had to know in advance the details of services to be deployed. Wizards which attempt to guide developers through entering service details are unforgiving if one or two items are unknown as the developer is entering them. With ActiveVOS 6.1, however, details are presented as graphical tables into which details can be entered at any time. To prevent flaws, ActiveVOS 6.1 provides automated analysis to ensure correctness and completeness.
  • Automatic Development - ActiveVOS 6.1 makes it easy for developers new to SOA-based BPM to do the "right thing." ActiveVOS 6.1 automatically understands the basic - but complex - idea of "private" versus "public" web services definition files (WSDL). And ActiveVOS 6.1 will automatically create the required WSDLs, in a 100%-standards compliant mode and in a human-understandable format.
  • Improved Data Handling - ActiveVOS 6.1 allows developers to visually specify what data is needed in each activity and guides the developer through XPath and XQuery statement generation with point-and-click ease when navigating the Business Process Execution Language (BPEL), the core language of SOA.

Users can download a free, 30-day, fully-supported trial of ActiveVOS 6.1. ActiveVOS is available as a perpetual license for use in either an internal development environment or a deployment environment.
