In my current project we are going to need a BPEL engine besides our Mule CE implementation. Actually, we will use Mule for our stateless communication between systems and use BPEL for the stateful processes. One of the possible frameworks to use as a BPEL engine is Apache ODE. In this post I will show you how you can start a BPEL process in Apache ODE with Mule. As you will see, it is merely a combination of posts I made earlier, but I think it is nice to have the complete thing in one post.
