    Case handling(management) vs workflow

    fero kocun Newbie

      Hi,

      what is the diferrence between case handling (management) system and workflow (process) engine?

      I have read workflowpatterns.com and they call FLOWer not a wfe but a case handling system.

      From http://www.workflowpatterns.com/patterns/control/state/wcp18.php :
      "Note that FLOWer only re-evaluates the state after each change with respect to data elements"


      So I was interested what does it mean and I found one interesting article http://www.bpminstitute.org/articles/article/article/bpms-watch-what-is-case-management.html . But nothing more concrete. Could you give the definition of case handling system and difference between workflow. Some examples are welcome!

      Thanks
