In computing, AquaLogic comprised a software suite developed by BEA Systems for managing service-oriented architecture (SOA). Following the acquisition of BEA by Oracle Corporation in April 2008, most of the software have been renamed and the term AquaLogic is not used in any new Oracle product. New names are indicated below. The Suite included the following products:

  • BEA AquaLogic BPM suite -now Oracle BPM- offers a set of business process management (BPM) tools. It combines workflow and process technology with enterprise application integration functionality. The suite consists of tools intended for use by line-of-business personnel for creating business process models (AquaLogic BPM Designer), as well as tools for IT personnel to create actual business process applications directly from said models (AquaLogic BPM Studio). The completed business process applications, when deployed on a production server (AquaLogic BPM Enterprise Server), integrate to backend applications and generate portal views for human interactions in the process. Oracle BPM includes customizable tools for live business activity monitoring (BAM).
  • BEA AquaLogic User Interaction -now Oracle WebCenter Interaction- is a set of tools used to create portals, collaborative communities, composite applications, and other applications that use service architecture. These technologies work cross-platform.
  • BEA AquaLogic Enterprise Repository -now Oracle Enterprise Repository-, a vital element of effective Service-oriented architecture life-cycle governance, manages the metadata for any type of software asset, from business processes and Web Services to patterns, frameworks, applications, and components. It maps the relationships and interdependencies that connect these assets to improve impact analysis, promote and systematize software reuse, and measure the impact on the bottom line.
  • BEA AquaLogic Service Bus -now Oracle Service Bus-, an enterprise service bus (ESB), has operational service-management. It allows the interaction between services, routing relationships, transformations, and policies.
  • BEA AquaLogic Service Registry -now Oracle Service Registry- is a UDDI v3 registry with an embedded governance framework. It provides a repository where services can be registered and reused for developing or modifying applications.
  • BEA AquaLogic Data Services Platform -now Oracle Data Service Integrator- (previously known as Liquid Data) provides tools for creating and managing different data services. It uses the XQuery language for data composition and transformation for a variety of data sources, including relational databases and web services.
  • BEA AquaLogic Enterprise Security -now Oracle Entitlement Server- consists of a security-infrastructure application for distributed authentication, fine-grained entitlements and other security services. Features include allowing users to define access rules for applications without modifying the software itself, including JSP pages, EJBs and portlets.
  • BEA AquaLogic Commerce Services -often shortened as ALCS- an e-Commerce solution based on Elastic Path e-Commerce solution integrated with WebLogic application server. Discontinued on version 6.0 in year 2009.
