I once wrote a blog on setting up jBPM 3 with jBoss ESB which proved useful to lot of folks. Now I am going to present a similar one for the all-new jBPM5. There is indeed a huge difference between the two and I must admit that the new product stack is looking very good, loaded with many must-have options any BPM product should ship with.
I will write about all the technical insights in a separate post. One good news you should know is that the installation has got a lot easier in this version. Let's just get started with jBPM 5, install it, and see it for ourselves.
- JDK 1.5 or higher (Download Page)
- Ant 1.7.1 or higher (Download Page)
- PATH variable: properly set for both.
- Get the Installer (Download Page) (Link last updated on Jan 7, 2013)
- Install jBPM5
- Import a sample project
- Run the sample project
