I found out that the "Simulation and debug support of business processes" is included within the scope of the BPMN2.0 modeler.
Is this feature implemented in the latest release of the Modeler? If not are you intending to imlement it? If yes do you have any resource on how i can simulate a business process using the modeler.
I found that there exists a tab "Simulation" the BPMN diagrams but i can't figure out how we can run the simulation after entering the input values. I searched for documentation on this subject but i found nothing.
This is very important since i need to figure out it exists or i am obliger to code it .

Currently the "Simulation" tab is only there for compatibility and to allow you to edit those properties for the jbpm5 runtime. Simulation of a process is not yet possible from the eclipse BPMN2 Modeler, but it IS available with the jBPM Web Designer so we wanted to provide support for this in the eclipse editor as early as possible.
Note that the jBPM Web Designer implements a subset of the newly emerging Business Process Simulation standard that is being defined by the bpswg. You may have a different concept of what "simulation" means, e.g. tracing a running business process which, IMHO, falls more into the BAM category.
Tracing and simulation are features that are in the project plan for the BPMN2 Modeler, unfortunately I haven't had much time to devote to this. If you DO decide to to look into coding this new functionality, please let me know and I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have
