One of the predominant problems IT companies are facing today is Enterprise Application Integration (EAI). Most of the infrastructures built to tackle integration issues are proprietary because no standards exist for how to model, develop, and actually execute integration scenarios. Moreover, those systems are built on top of Pipes-and-Filters architecture that offers only limited capabilities for productive environments. As Service-oriented architectures (SOA) can be seen as de-facto standard for building enterprise systems today, including integration systems, there is a need to utilize those systems for executing integration scenarios. Business processes in an SOA environment can be used to integrate various applications to form an integration solution. Thus the application domain of BPM is significantly extended. In this paper, we introduce how integration solutions can be executed on BPM infrastructures. To demonstrate this we introduce a tool supporting integration architects to design integration scenarios and execute these solutions automatically.
