BPMN2 Modeler

The mission of the SOA Project is to build frameworks and extensible tools that enable the design, configuration, assembly, deployment, monitoring, and management of software designed around a Service Oriented Architecture. The project is guided by the values of transparency, extensibility, vendor neutrality, community collaboration, agile development, and standards-based innovation.

There has been a lot of interest recently in the BPMN 2.0 specification, and many feel that what UML is to object modeling, BPMN 2.0 will be to business process modeling and will become the de facto standard.

The BPMN2 Modeler is a graphical modeling tool which allows creation and editing of BPMN ( Business Process Modeling Notation ) diagrams. The tool is built on Eclipse Graphiti and uses the BPMN 2.0 EMF meta model currently being developed within the Eclipse Model Development Tools (MDT) project. This meta model is compatible with the BPMN 2.0 specification proposed by the Object Management Group.
