    Is there someplace that describes what you have to do to get the xml to work in the JBPM 5.0 engine?

     

    Thanks,

    Hi Albert,

     

    At this time, the best place would be the jBPM Users Guide and the unit tests in the jBPM sources. I'll work out some examples in the near future.

    This is nice temporary measure to wrap up the initial prototype. But calling it the "New BPMN 2 editor" is misleading: In the new year, Kris will be working with a team to provide a replacement editor based on a modern graphical framework and model. Kris, as the jBPM 5 lead, will have more to say about this going forward.

    Hi Koen

     

    Impressive new !!!.

     

    We are using JBPM4.4 and JPDL at this time.

     

    1/ My plan is to move first to BPMN2.0 then later to JBPM5. This is because JBPM5 is somewhat new but still announced as the next major release. Therefore we have to prepare ourselves knowing JBPM5 do not support JPDL. Since JBPM4.4 do support BPMN 2.0 can you confirm using your BPMN 2.0 editor along with GPD editor in eclipse and JBPM4.4 run time is ok.

     

    2/ is there any eclipse version requirement for your editor (I remember GDP shipped along with JBPM.4.3 was not compatible with eclipse 3.4  GANYMEDE). Is it compatible with GALILEO or HELIOS or both ?

     

    3/ The JBPM5 project talk about a migration tool from JPDL to BPMN2.0 do you know if something is availlable, and perhaps have you experienced yourself  ?

     

    Thanks

    Hi Jean-Noel,

     

    I think there shouldn't be any issues with using both the BPMN 2.0 editor as the jBPM 4 GPD in one Eclipse installation. I did not test it though. I also didn't test whether the BPMN 2.0 editor works in Ganymede. It was developed against Helios.

    As for a migration tool, Eric Shabell and team are working on a project to migrate jBPM 3 to jBPM 5. Talk to them if you want to include the migration from jBPM 4. Also, if you just want to translate the jPDL files to BPMN it should be possible with an XSLT transformation.

    Hi  Koen,

    I'm writting right now a free community training course for jBPM5 and I wanna know if you have updated versions for the plugin. So, I can use it to show people how to build their processes. One of the required things is to include a businessRuleTask that was not included in the version that you put on your blog post.

    Greetings.

    Hi Mauricio,

     

    I'm a bit busy working on other stuff right now but I'll see what I can do some lonely and boring evening later this week. It's not a big deal adding another node type. ;-)

     

    Cheers,

    Koen

    Hi Koen and Mauricio

     

    Just for information,

    you may mention somewhere in the doc that HELIOS (ECLIPSE 3.6) is required for this plugin

    Regards.

    Hi Mauricio,

     

    I have added the business rule task as well as some more attractive BPMN 2 icons. Look at the screenshot in my blog.

     

    And Jean-Noel, it is indeed brewed on Helios. But that should not be much of a problem, right?

     

    Cheers,

    Koen
