This Release Candidate version (second major step on the road for the final version) also include basic support for elements defined in the XPDL 1.0 standard as well as most the main features already supported in Bonita v3. Main focus os this release has been bug fixing, additional unit tests and minor enhancements.
This RC2 comes with the first beta version of the BPM graphical console for Nova Bonita and Nova Orchestra. This console is based on the ultimate version of the eXo Platform open source project. Together with this console we will continue to leverage the integration we did in the past between Bonita and eXo ECM inside a portal.
Note that as eXo is based on portlets, so the BPM Console will easily allow to add your favourite portlets and new features on top.
The BPM console currently provide deployment, execution and monitoring BPM capabilities. It could be deployed individually or in common with Nova Bonita and/or Nova Orchestra projects. Could you imagine a Web 2.0 generic and customizable console for easily handle XPDL and/or BPEL processes? just take a look to the following video published at BPM Corner: http://www.bpmcorner.org/revolutionary-web-20-bpm-console-preview.html
