Hi all

Emmanuel Rias (Bull) has kindly agreed to be in charge of the [xpdl]
workgroup and to take some time each week to help keep track and push
forward the workgroup's discussions and works. He'll be seconded by his
colleague Miguel in the background.

The goal of the [xpdl] workgroup is foster discussions and works toward
an XPDL mapping for JWT. This includes obviously how to do it and the
architecture of the mapping, what piece of code to use (e.g. Bull
NovaSuite's, Object Engineering's...) but also what metadata it requires
the metamodel to have - so it has direct ties with the [metamodel]

Its members for now outside of Emmanuel and Miguel will be Tim
Stephenson (Tibco), who has experience of such "double mapping", Roman
Zulauf (who did Object Engineering's XPDL mapping design and
implementation), myself (Marc) and Aers Koen (jBoss).

Now I step back so Emmanuel may take charge !

Hi all

After a few individual consultations, I 'm going to be in charge of the
[architecture] workgroup. So expect a few emails on this subject each
week, in order to put the big topics on the front page and keep track of
the others !

The [architecture] workgroup's goals are to keep track of the whole
picture. As a matter of fact, it means gathering all the pieces together
and make them fit, write the detailed architecture where there is none
(e.g. where there is no existing code, ex. in the WAM), get inputs about
it where there is a starting point, and handle packaging and other
release-implied matters.

Its members for now outside of myself are most logically Pardeep
(independant consultant, who has already expressed his transverse
interests), Gunther Palfinger (eMundo, who has the best knowledge of
AgilPro's architecture), Fabrice Dewasmes (Pragma Consult, initiator of

As a starting point, here are a few questions or topics :

* we have to put together "good programming rules" for JWT, like
following the "eclipse java style". In a larger perspective, a "howto"
page about developing in JWT would be welcome, with information such as
how to configure the development environment, how to build and test the
plugins (here Pardeep tipped me about that), what versions of
dependancies (ex. EMF) to use... Other inputs please ?

* I believe the WAM builds on the metamodel, extends it and provides
further features. Obviously this is discussed in the [wam] metamodel,
but I'd say the BP repository API could actually use the WE Process and
Package concepts like this :
interface Repository {
install(Process); // installs a Process (in its Package) in the BP
install(Package); // installs a Package and its packaged BPs in the
However the idea of JWT packages were also those of kinda jar-like
packaging of BPs together, so in this light it would not be AgilPro's
Package concept which is closer to Java's packages... What do you think
about that, should we need separate BPDefinitionPackage (java
package-like) and DeployableBPPackage (jar-like) ?
