Twister incubating in Apache

Fri, 29 Apr 2005 08:51:47 -0000

Good news! Twister is moving to Apache's Incubator. It's actually going to be merged with an existing incubated project named Agila. Agila will have two major components: Agila BPEL (Twister) and Agila BPM. The first is the Web Service orchestration solution based on the WS-BPEL specifications and the second is an end-user oriented workflow.
The goal is to build a stronger community and to nicely integrate the two tools to answer to more needs than each tool separately (usually people doing web service orchestration need end user workflow interactions and vice-versa). Current Twister users don't need to worry, only the packaging is going to change a bit but all current interfaces will remain supported.

If you're interested or if you have more questions, don't hesitate to subscribe to Agila's user mailing-list ( If you want to help us developing Agila, subscribe to Agila's developers mailing-list (

Opening Twister to contributions

Mon, 24 May 2004 16:46:50 -0000

We are currently opening Twister to contributions. Anybody willing to participate can directly contact me ( and we will try to check what your interests are and how you can help us depending on your knowledge (that could require a small interview).
Before contacting me, please keep in mind that Twister is built on top of a lot of different technologies and can already be quite complex, so this could actually require time. But we will try to match the amount of time you're ready to give with the tasks that msut be completed.

Twister 0.1 released

Wed, 24 Mar 2004 15:27:56 -0000

Twister is the first Open Source workflow engine implementing the WS-BPEL specification. This early release doesn't cover all necessary features required by the specification but is already functional and should cover most needs easily. Twister is written in Java and its communication layer is based on Web Services specifications (it can therefore interoperate with any XML-aware system).
