Bob, we are very interested in this proposal as with Stardust (http://eclipse.org/proposals/soa.stardust/) we are having submitted a proposal for a complete BPM suite |
which also contains a BPMN editor with e.g. simulation and debugging capabilities but also a runtime environment and end user portal with workflow, system integration
and document management. monitoring and reporting.
As there is overlap regarding the modeler between your proposal and Stardust, we think we should combine our efforts and build - and use - the "best BPMN modeler in the universe" together.
Starting with a clean codebase and the BPMN 2.0 metamodel is surely an excellent approach. However we have learned working with and on these things for a long time, that real world BPM modeling
needs a lot more than just a BPMN editor.
To leverage this expertise best for this project, we could - and are happy to - help with
* embedding the results of this project in Stardust,
* making sure that the necessary extension points for enhancements (e.g. for simulation, debugging, concurrent modelling, versioning, model cross references etc.) exist,
* testing end-to-end modeling and deployment and
* thoughts and code on certain modeling features we may have done pretty OK (e.g. swimlanes).
I suggest to do some webcasts on te current status of both projects to everybody who is interested and brainstorm on options after.
