Hi,
I'm trying to build with GMF a visual editor for BPMN2.
During the workflow you have to define an ecore Domain Model and to derive other necessary models.
Which ecore Domain Model must be defined for this step? In the model directory are four different Domain-Models present.
And which Diagram-Element I've to select during derivation?
I've already tried out some configurations with no success.

Thanks for your help!

Hello,
I guess you have to choose BPMN20.ecore as your domain model.

The root element would be Definitions, but be aware that there is not always a perfect match between visual diagram and underlying BPMN2 model.

Regards,
Henning

Yeah, that is right. There are several mismatches during the creation of the mapping model. It seems, that I've to repair it by myself.

Hi There,

I have been looking for a BPMN2 GMF diagram editor, which could be
integrated into a product. I noticed JBoss, has BPMN2 (jbpm5) project
with (two?) visual editor(s) .

http://hudson.jboss.org/hudson/job/jBPM5-release/lastSuccess fulBuild/artifact/target/jbpm-5.0.0-docs-build/jbpm-docs/htm l/index.html

Is there some common effort, from Redhat/JBoss and Eclipse community for
this? (I think the limited icon set from the MDT project are the coolest
though :-) and the drools guys, have not been bothered on the icons for
sure! )


Cheers Christophe
p.s. Also noticed, the bpmn2.ecore contains a diagram object, so I guess
it's diagram ready!

Hi Marcel!

Did you create a BPMN20 editor? If yes, how?
I tried to do following this guide http://wiki.eclipse.org/Graphical_Modeling_Framework/Tutoria l

But when i try to create "A graphical definition" the system crash... (without errors and only with BPMN20 ecore).

if you have successfully created BPMN2 editor can you send me it?, or explain how i can do it!

thanks

Hi Riccardo,

sorry for the bad news, I've stopped working on a graphical editor for bpmn2, cause of several mismatches during derivation...

Hope there will be soon a graphical editor of the eclipse modeling team.

Hi all,

We (Red Hat/JBoss) are working on a BPMN2 editor which will eventually become an eclipse project. Check it out here: http://www.eclipse.org/proposals/soa.bpmn2-modeler

Cheers!
Bob

The project landing page is at http://eclipse.org/bpmn2-modeler but it's not much to look at just yet ( baby steps Smile

The update site is here:
http://download.eclipse.org/bpmn2-modeler/site/
Note that the BPMN2 metamodel plug-ins are still not available from any eclipse update site, so I've created a temporary home for them here:
http://download.eclipse.org/bpmn2-modeler/bpmn2/site/
These have to be installed in your eclipse workbench first, before installing the editor.

If you want to build the editor from sources, you can clone the GIT repository thusly:
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/bpmn2-modeler/org.eclipse.bpmn2-modeler.git
and then run "mvn -P platform-indigo clean install" on the project (there's also a helios profile).

There's also a mailing list to which you can subscribe at https://dev.eclipse.org/mailman/listinfo/bpmn2-modeler-dev
