The advantages of the process-based approach toimplementing applications lead to the development ofnotations for modelling business processes andlanguages for enacting them in a process engine forthe purpose of process automation. Currently theBusiness Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) istypically used for modelling business processes andthe Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) isused as the process execution format. Both languagesdiffer in purpose, expressivity and operationalsemantics. Recently it has been shown that there is nocomplete bi-directional mapping between BPMN andBPEL and transformations have been defined betweenthe two formalisms. However, these transformationslead to more complex models in both, BPEL andBPMN, and enable a roundtrip for only a limitednumber of scenarios. In this paper we show how BPELprocesses can be modelled using the graphical aspectof BPMN in order to facilitate modelling of executableprocesses using BPMN while avoiding modeltransformations.
