Welcome to the ALF Wiki page. Come back often for the latest and greatest about ALF.

The Application Lifecycle Framework (ALF) Project enables development and IT tools to be orchestrated in support of the consumer’s business needs. ALF provides the logical definition of the overall interoperability business process. This technology handles the exchange of information from one tool to another, the business logic governing the sequencing of tools in support of the application lifecycle process, and the routing of significant events as tools interact. ALF achieves this by providing a common infrastructure (SOAP Web Services, BPEL orchestration engine and the ALF Event Manager), and a set of domain vocabularies that define the events, objects and attributes. Together these address the issues of tool interoperability and interchangeability, process segmentation, reusability, and versioning. ALF provides various Common Services (logging, notifications, security, etc.) that are easily integrated into BPEL processes to create richer interoperability processes.
