BPMFlow is an implementation of the Buisness Process Model standards and includes an execution engine for business process automation.
BPMFlow is integrated with different technologies such as:
BPM models are created using Bizagi Modeler ® and exported as XPDL files. The XPDL files are imported into BPMFlow, and the BPM Meta Model Execution Engine can instantiate and execute the models inside GemStone/S.
The BPM application presents forms for the user to enter or modify data using Orbeon ® or Seaside components. Inside Bizagi Modeler if a task has the extended attribute -seasideComponent- then is a Seaside task if not then is an Orbeon form. The execution engine will show a Seaside component or an Orbeon form depending on the task's definition in the Bizagi Modeler.
Using Orbeon is entirely optional..
Store Orbeon Form Definitions and Instances
It creates from the XML string an object representation of the Form Definition or Instance .
Query Orbeon Form Definitions and Instances.
Different queries can be applied to Form Definitions and Instances.
Process Orbeon Forms in XML format after being POST by the user.
Orbeon do a POST to a REST services and it is processed and added to GemStone/S object base.
Synchronization between Orbeon MySQL Database and GemStone/S Object Database.
Import XPDL files from Bizagi Modeler.
Others modeler tools can be added using XPDL import.
Each Bizagi element is mapped to an BpmArtifactDefinition subclass.
The Bizagi process creates a BpmProcessDefinition instance representing the process definition inside GemStone/S.
The BPM Execution Engine instantiate and execute instances of BpmProcessDefinition giving life to the process.
Each Bizagi task presents a user interface using either an Orbeon Form or a Seaside Component.
Support for Gateways:
Creation Conditions: [:form | form amount > 15000]
Display Orbeon in a IFrame or in a different page (configurable by user).
Backoffice and Frontoffice web applications.
