News: Workflow engine con:cern 2.0 released

  1. Workflow engine con:cern 2.0 released (7 messages)

    con:cern is a workflow engine based on an extended case handling approach. A process is described as a set of activities with pre- and postconditions. An activity is executed when its preconditions are met. It manipulates the process item, thereby creating postconditions. The process flow is determined at run-time.

    This release features a reimplementation of the controller based on hibernate. The controller can be deployed as an MBean, as a spring component, standalone or as part of a web application. The modeller has been radically improved. The generator can generate various artifacts, including html documentation and unit test templates.

    Along the changes are:

    controller:
    o based on hibernate
    o jmx integration
    o spring integration
    o temporal conditions
    o optional activities
    o events and listeners

    modeller:
    o cycle analyzer
    o library
    o dynamic attributes
    o improved usability (dnd, ..)

  2. Really interesting. An English version of the 3 first documents (which seems to explain core concepts) would be nice.

    Improving the documentation and the homepage is (beside ognl integration) the top most item on my todo list.
  4. That's a nice anonuncement, but I can't really understand that first place in the features description is:
    "based on hibernate" but not "written on java" or "done by clever people" or "runns everywhere"? I'l looking for the workflow engine currently and beleve me, if con:concern was based on JDO will makes no sence for me (if I really going to use it as workflow engine)
  5. Earlier versions of the controller were based on entity beans and thus required a j2ee environment. con:cern 2.0's only dependency is hibernate.
  6. There is even a graph "modeller". I'm puzzled.
