Sometimes simple things are simple!
Take for example creating process models that you can show in 2 different languages. With OBPM this is so simple, that I at first I could not find it because I was looking in the wrong place.

One of those too stupid to be discussed items is how you can make the SOA Suite show detailed information about the payload for activities like a script activities, or what is going on inside a business rule. After all, every SOA/BPM developer is assumed to know how to set (more...)
In some cases you may want to manipulate the payload of a human task of an OPBM or BPEL process instance using JAXB. An example would be when you are using some other framework than ADF Faces for creating the UI, and you want to work with Java objects instead (more...)
