It's funny to see how these companinies use huge number of buzzwords to market "simple" worklflow engine.
Take a look at true research on worklflows
Dear Giedrius Trumpickas,
Thank you for your short review. It's very pleasant to know that 3-year practical experience of 20 programmers development team can be shortly characterized as "simple workflow engine". I can't believe that jBear Suite can be fully analyzed within one day just by reading high-level overview papers. jBear doesn't pretend to be full-featured workflow management system (however, it does include some of workflow modeling capabilities). jBear's purpose is different: it can help one to spend less time and resources to prototype and, if desired, get running J2EE application. I hope that community here may have some practical interest.
PS: It was not my aim to advertise the product; it is not on a market now.
Ok maybe I'm wrong but ...
But try to listen to your writings "abstract architecture-driven framework". Architecture driven framework? Abstract? So it have huge number of abstract classes? And what means architecture driven framework? So framework can be not "architecture driven"? Before writting such nonsense firt try to read it yourself.
