    Based on description of product, it's very impressive. What's the license model? Is it based on GPL or LGPL or What?

    Also, how is this product different from Activiti launched by Alfresco as next generation BPM engine based on BPMN 2.0. It will be helpful to know how your product is different from the above.

    Thanks - Raj

    Hi Raj,

    Bonita Open Solution is distributed under GPL v2 license. The Bonita Engine is available under LGPL license to easily be embedded in your custom application development.

    Other open source solutions are far away from what Bonita Open Solution is providing. The solution is a clear alternative to proprietary BPM solutions in the market and includes advanced capabilities such a web forms designer, a connectivity framework with +100 native connectors to other solutions (ECM, DBs, ETL, ERPs, Portals, ESBs, BI...), web applications generation, BI and BAM... and of course basic capabilities such a BPMN2 support, graphical business process definition, a BPM portal or a lightweight BPM Engine.  

    The solution can be used as a standalone BPM product or in any custom application development, including applications developments in other languages than Java. Bonita Open Solution based applications run in a lightweight server (Tomcat, Jetty), in an application server (Jboss, Weblogic...) and in the cloud.
