Oracle plans to combine two of its web products to make it easier for developers to set security policies for applications built using its Oracle BPEL Process manager software.
Since it seeks to combine the BPEL (Business Process Execution Language) tool with its Oracle Web Services manager product, software developers will not have to explicitly write out security policies while using the BPEL Process manager.
Instead of purchasing a separate Web services orchestration engine and security tool, customers will now be able to purchase a combined product the company said.
BPEL is a language based on XML (Extensible Markup Language) that gives developers a way of describing business processes as Web services. It has been developed by the Oasis Consortium.
