Tom Baeyens on Blending Process and Rules

Post by
Scott Francis

Tom continues to update the world with jBPM updates - in this case, using jBPM 4 and Drools to blend process and rules. His updates definitely play to the technical audience rather than the business - but I don't find that too surprising in the open source world.? From a technical perspective, it is certainly interesting.? Proof that these memes seem to emerge on their own : Bruce Silver has also recently posted on rules and BPM (part 2 of a previous effort). At some point I look forward to digging into jBPM more thoroughly, and now that it supports BPMN 2, I'm more inclined to make the time, its starting to get interesting for the kinds of problems we look at.? However, I still fear that it is just a bit too technical in terms of what it requires of process authors still. A previous update confirms that jBPM now supports BPMN 2.0, as of version 4.0.? This is a niche I think open source can help fill - potentially fully implementing a spec that probably won't be fully implemented by any commercial software vendor.? (Filling out the corners is just the kind of academic exercise that seems to get tackled by *someone* within an open source effort)
