An efficient business process execution and management are crucial for using a Service Oriented Architectures (SOA). Despite there are many applications offering such a functionality for Big Web Services, there is a lack of easy-to-use and well defined tools supporting the alternative approach, called ROA and RESTful Web-Services. In this paper the business process engine implementing a declarative business process language supporting web services compatible with REST paradigm is discussed.
