jBPM Designer 2.0

Designer version 2.0 has been released alongside jBPM 5.2. This is a major release and includes some really cool new features:

  • Visual Process Validation: new features allows users to visually validate their processes at edit time
  • Ability to view the process in ERDF, JSON, PDF, PNG, BPMN2, and SVG formats
  • New Process Information section: contains information about the process, such as name, creation date, version, etc
  • jBPM 3.2 Process Migration: new feature allows users to migrate existing jBPM 3.2-based processes to BPMN2
  • Ability to import existing bpmn2 processes straight into designer
  • Ability to create “sharable” process image, PDF, and ability to generate code for embedding designer in custom applications
  • Support four boundary events
  • Visual support for Text Annotations, Groups, and Lanes
  • Support for sub-processes
  • Update to latest Guvnor

This video shows some of these new features.

    Just on remark to your screenshot: the shown process is not valid BPMN 2.0 as sequence flows must not cross pool borders.

      Hi Andreas, thank you for your comment. What you see are Lanes and not Pools. Designer currently supports a single Pool element (which is the canvas itself). Support for multiple Pools is going to be added in the next versions; making the BPMN 2.0 that you see valid, and not invalid as you mention.

    Hi Tihomir,
    These are all great features, congratulations!.
    You also mentioned: ‘Support for sub-processes’. Could you elaborate more on this or point us to right document? Does Guvnor/Designer actually support reusable sub-processes?

    • tsurdilovic says:

      Hi Jim,
      we are adding support for reusable sub-processes right now. Currently there is support for Embedded and Ad-Hoc.
      Let me know if you are in need of this and I can provide you a snapshot 2.1 war to use as soon as the work is done.


    • tsurdilovic says:

      Jim, you can now download a snapshot designer war which includes support for Reusable Subprocesses (call activities) here: http://people.redhat.com/tsurdilo/designer/master/. Note this is not an official release. This feature will officially be available in 2.1.

      Hope this helps.

        I have downloaded the snapshot and tested for reusable subprocesses, and I must say it is working very well!. Thank you very much.
