A couple weeks ago I implemented 2 web applications and a REST API for a new open sourced BPM / BPMN 2.0 engine named Activiti. Feel free to visit http://www.activiti.org where you may download the distribution (Apache licensed) and play around with it. The actual BPM engine is just a simple jar file having the benefit of therefore being deployable in virtually any JAVA environment. Activiti - Safari tutorial Activiti - Safari tutorial

Therefore I am sharing my experience solution to avoid you a headache. Configuration Instructions for Activiti Configuration Instructions for Activiti

BPM - Process Developments Earlier today Last week I got into this twitter conversation (couldn't publish earlier from inside China): It’s a condensed conversation deserves some elaboration. When the term BPM is used, always bear in mind that there are 2 sides to that coin: A management discipline and a type of software system. Here’s the basic context of BPM as a management discipline so that everyone is on the same page: At first, some desired result must be achieved. A manager typically breaks down the tasks to be done and delegates them to employees. BPM - Process Developments

The Kepler Project — Kepler Info The Kepler Project is dedicated to furthering and supporting the capabilities, use, and awareness of the free and open source, scientific workflow application, Kepler. Kepler is designed to help scien­tists, analysts, and computer programmers create, execute, and share models and analyses across a broad range of scientific and engineering disciplines. Kepler can operate on data stored in a variety of formats, locally and over the internet, and is an effective environment for integrating disparate software components, such as merging "R" scripts with compiled "C" code, or facilitating remote, distributed execution of models.

Petri net - Wiki

A Petri net (also known as a place/transition net or P/T net) is one of several mathematical modeling languages for the description of distributed systems. A Petri net is a directed bipartite graph, in which the nodes represent transitions (i.e. events that may occur, signified by bars) and places (i.e. conditions, signified by circles). The directed arcs describe which places are pre- and/or postconditions for which transitions (signified by arrows). Some sources[1] state that Petri nets were invented in August 1939 by Carl Adam Petri — at the age of 13 — for the purpose of describing chemical processes.
