Written by Casper Biever on , under Community category.
The holidays are upon us, time for a lighter kind of blog post: Conways’s game of life on a Raspberry Pi. Conways game of life can be modelled by the following bpmn and dmn: In order to see what is happening the Raspberry Pi was hooked up to a 8x8 LED matrix (can be bought e.g at Adafruit together with the Raspberry Pi 3, breadboard and jumper wires). Raspberrry Pi and the LED matrix The LED matrix is driven by a simple progam written in Go that receives the information which LED to light or dim through a socket connection from the Camunda engine.

How to chain decisions with DRDs

Written by Niall Deehan on , under DMN category.
Happy Birthday DMN DMN has proven to be a very popular and well adopted standard for describing and executing business rules. It’s uptake among Camunda users alone has been very impressive, especially considering it’s a standard that’s only about a year old. It’s popularity has given us the perfect excuse to implement even more elements of the standard. In fact since we first started to support it, we’ve been asked about when we intend to implement DRDs (Decision Requirements Diagram).

Written by Jan Galinski on , under Execution category.

Today is a great day for the Camunda Spring Boot starter extension: after three month of hard (but mostly fun) work, we are proud to announce the release of 2.0.0.

We decided to switch to a new major version, because a lot of things changed:

  • new groupId: org.camunda.bpm.extension.springboot and a new maven module structure
  • switch to Java 8
  • switch to Spring Boot 1.4.2
  • switch to Camunda BPM 7.6.0

Besides those internal enhancements, we worked on stability, convenience and support of the enterprise edition.

ECM and Camunda - Using CMIS

Written by Felix Müller on , under Community category.
In my recent blogpost I discussed an example on how to integrate Camunda with modern ECM SaaS providers like Box. As many companies are still using traditional ECM and DMS solutions within this blogpost I will focus on CMIS. The open CMIS standard stands for Content Management Interoperability Services and allows to integrate with a number of different DMS solutions. Most popular DMS solutions come with an API that is based on the CMIS standard as one can see in this list of CMIS implementations.

ECM and Camunda - Integrating with Camunda

Written by Felix Müller on , under Community category.
Many core workflows in organizations involve some kind of document management. Organizations usually handle document management with the help of DMS or ECM software solutions. The term Enterprise Content Management (ECM) was first introduced in 2000 by the AIIM International. In todays’ definition ECM covers (web) content, document, records, workflow and digital asset management as well as search, collaboration, capture and scanning. Furthermore, often document management systems (DMS) are viewed to be a component of ECM.
