Workflow Resource Patterns as a Rule to Support BPEL4 People Standardization Efforts

Workflow Resource Patterns as a Rule to Support BPEL4 People Standardization Efforts
Nick Russell and Wil van der Aalt propose that workflow resource patterns serve as a means of evaluating BPEL4People and WS-Human Task standardization proposals currently under consideration. Read their Article to learn their take on the strengths and weaknesses of these proposals and what opportunities exist for further improvement.
