    Can I use the Designer without the need to have a technical prerequisite or dependency, as with Eclipse or the Drools repository? As a business analyst I am interested in building processes along with my sponsor, then when done, ship the XML process documents to the Java jBPM developers for implementation.

      Currently you have to use Designer alongside Drools Guvnor if you want to store your assets. If you want to model your business process and view (cut/paste) your bpmn2 to send to a developer you can do that as well via local mode


      where you can really use any uuid value.

      We are currently working on a standalone repository for Designer which should be available in the next release.

    hello, i’ve encountered some problems building jBPM Designer 2.4.0.Final from scratch (compilation errors in SimulationServlet). Does simple ‘mvn clean install’ do the job ? Or do i need to use some additional options / provide some profile name ?
    I cloned the entire jbpm-designer repository from github and launched ‘git checkout 2.4.0.Final’ followed by ‘mvn clean install’ – and it all went to hell (more details here : https://community.jboss.org/message/803576#803576). It might not be the best place for such issues but i’m stuck with my work and thus far got no response from the community.
    Thx in advance for any assistance

      I have just uploaded the correct simulation bits onto nexus so please try again. If this issue still persists here are the steps you should do locally:

      1) git clone https://github.com/mswiderski/jbpm-simulation.git
      2) cd jbpm-simulation
      3) git checkout guvnor-integration
      4) mvn clean install -U
      5) build designer

      That way you can assure that the correct simulation version is going to be picked up by Designer from your local repository.
