OSWorkflow: A guide for Java developers and architects to integrating open-source Business Process Management
Diego Adrian Naya Lazo
This book covers all aspects of OSWorkflow for Java developers and system architects, from basics of Business Process Management and installing OSWorkflow to developing complex Java applications and integrating this open-source Java workflow engine with the third-party components Drools for business rules, Quartz for task scheduling, and Pentaho for dashboards. Authored by an active developer of the OSWorkflow project, it gives step-by-step instructions, explaining the basics and clarifying and reinforcing principles with real-life examples. OSWorkflow is a pure Java open-source workflow engine for technical users, who can focus on the business logic and rules without Petri Net or finite state machine coding and easily integrate OSWorkflow into applications to create simple or complex workflows as needed. Because OSWorkflow provides a relatively low-level but highly flexible workflow implementation for Java developers, it is not a quick plug-and-play solution for non-technical users.
