jBPM – toolkit for building business applications to help automate business processes and decisions

jBPM is a Business Process Management (BPM) Suite. It’s a toolkit for building business applications to help automate business processes and decisions.

jBPM has evolved to enable users to pick their own path in business automation. It provides various capabilities that simplify and externalize business logic into reusable assets such as cases, processes, decision tables and more.

The software is often used to build business applications. A business application could be defined as a domain-specific solution (built with selected frameworks and capabilities) that solves a particular business problem.

Features include:

  • Lightweight, extensible workflow engine written in Java that allows you to execute business processes using the latest BPMN 2.0 specification.
  • Eclipse-based and web-based editor to support the graphical creation of your business processes and case definitions (drag & drop).
  • Pluggable persistence and transactions based on JPA / JTA.
  • Pluggable human task service based on WS-HumanTask for including tasks that need to be performed by human actors.
  • Management console supporting process instance management, task lists and task form management, and reporting.
  • Optional process repository to deploy your process (and other related knowledge).
  • History logging (for querying / monitoring / analysis).
  • Integration with various frameworks such as CDI/EJB, Spring(Boot), OSGi, etc.
  • Supports adaptive and dynamic processes that require flexibility to model complex, real-life situations that cannot easily be described using a rigid process.
