Target Environments

This release will target Eclipse Indigo as the recommended configuration, but will also be compatible with Eclipse Helios, Juno and Kepler at all service levels. The BPEL Designer requires a Java 5 or compatible JRE, and has no operating system specific dependencies.


Most, if not all UI strings and validation error messages have been externalized in properties files and the BPEL Designer project is registered with the Babel project to allow the community to contribute to the translation effort.

Compatibility with Previous Releases

The BPEL Designer has been tested to work with all versions of Eclipse starting with Galileo (3.5.2) up to the current Kepler release. While the editor may still work with prior releases of Eclipse, there are no guarantees that the runtime deployment infrastructure will work with versions prior to Galileo.
