we have implemented a complete ERP System based on jbpm as process engine which controls our complete system based on business ervices (see our german press release for more details: http://www.camunda.com/pressemeldung.php?newsitem_id=800).
Also I work in a project at a customer at the moment where jbpm is the central engine (the glue) in the architecture. This software is for a well known and big company.
So, except for some typical troubles of new projects and some bugs, jbpm is a good, small and flexible BPM-Engine.
The biggest disadvantage at the moment is the lack of a good modeling tool or simulation capabilities....
But if you tell us more about your project I can say if it can be the right for you....
Your previous reply was very interesting to me.
I work for a company which is using JBPM as business process management engine. We are developing ERP system at the moment and I am very interested in some more details about using jBPM in your ERP system. I am mainly in charge for modeling process in our ERP system that's why I would appreciate if there is English version of the site you mentioned in your previous reply. I would also appreciate any relevant information concerning your success story.
Thanks in advance
Sorry, but we have no english version of our press release. All we have is some basic profile of the success story in english, but I can not imagine, that is helpful for you (but you can e-mail me, if I should send it to you anyway).
I have also written a article over jbpm in the german JavaSpektrum, wihich I translate at the moment. If you send me a Mail I put you on our newsletter then you get a Mail when it is finished (I will publish it on our homepage).
Does anybody have some success stories on using jBPM on large projects ?
RUNA WFE - open source workflow environment is based on jBPM.
See http://wf.runa.ru for details.
It is used in several middle size(from 500 to 1500 employees) companies.
Online demo is available at http://wf.runa.ru/English/OnLineDemo/Online_demo.html
