External Tasks allows new Use Cases with Camunda BPM 7.4

Written by Bernd Rücker on , under Execution category.
In a recent Blog Post I wrote about a concept we call “External Tasks” where services were not actively called from the Workflow Engine (PUSH) but where “Workers” retrieve their tasks from the Workflow Engine (PULL). We discussed this a lot and got so much feedback that we decided to support this pattern out-of-the-box in Camunda BPM 7.4. Let’s have a look at an example (yes - we do have customers implementing video processing :-)): External Task Pattern In this case transcoding and uploading a video file can take ages.

Over 3700 BPMN 2.0 Diagrams for Research Purposes

Written by Matthijs Burke on , under Modeling category.
We have put together a collection of BPMN 2.0 diagrams for research purposes. These diagrams have been created in our BPMN trainings, which we have been giving since 2008. In all of these trainings, the participants created BPMN diagrams based on so called text-to-model exercises. We provide you with the exercise texts, the participants’ results as well as our sample solutions. All diagrams have been anonymized and are provided as BPMN 2.0 XML files, which can be downloaded from our BPMN for Research repository on GitHub.

Escalation Events in Camunda BPM 7.4

Written by Niall Deehan on , under Execution category.
The humble escalation event has arrived to the Camunda process engine. Well actually there are technically 6 of them and while each is special in its own little way I’m going to give some examples of the most widely used ones. Escalation events act a lot like error events with one very important difference - You can throw an escalation event without interrupting the process instance. A good example of the usefulness of this event can be seen in the following model: This model describes a situation where someone needs to be made aware of an issue within the process.

Impressions from Camunda Community Day 2015

Written by Daniel Meyer on , under Community category.
Or in other words: Our most awesome community day yet! Last week our annual Camunda Community Day took place. I always enjoy that day very much because it gives me the opportunity to get in touch with community contributors and users. I always learn a lot during these days and I take a lot of engergy away from it. Same as last year, the Community Day took place here at the Camunda office in exactly the same space in which we normally sit behind our desks and write code.
