BPELJ madness

Stefan Tilkov,

IBM and BEA have published a whitepaper about a combination of BPEL with Java, named BPELJ.

I fully agree with Edwin Khodabakchian that this is a totally bad idea. I have a hard time accepting XML for building programming language-like constructs, anyway; but actually combining an XML process language while requiring another one as well seems to be totally wrong.
