[jwt-dev] AW: A question on Intermediate process models in JWT and STP

Hi Brian,
 
here at JWT we are well aware of the current work in STP. Some of our contributors and project partners like Stéphane Drapeau (Obeo), Alain Boulze (INRIA) or (a little bit) Adrian Mos (INRIA) are also involved in STP or STP IM.
 
Concerning the differences between JWT and STP IM:
STP IM is a minimal set of elements that normally each kind of process model (whether specified in BPMN, SCA, JBI, etc.) uses: there are steps and transitions, conditions, attributes, etc. In JWT we have a similar set of minimal elements, however currently not synchronized with the STP IM. Additionally, we have several other elements, that are necessary to describe a business process (similar to BPMN). We are in the progress of discussing how the final STP IM should look like, but I can't say for sure that STP IM and JWT will converge in the end (there are always political issues ;-).
In JWT we are already able to generate BPEL code (however, the code has not yet been submitted to Eclipse), but without having transformations to the STP IM. I fear that for the moment you need to have a look at both, the STP IM efforts as well as the JWT project. After the finalization of STP IM we will probably be able to say more about this.
 
Best regards,
 
Florian

Betreff: A question on Intermediate process models in JWT and STP

Hi Florian,
 
I saw your presentation on JWT at ESE a couple of months ago.  Have just heard Adrian Skehill of Iona talking about a similar topic in the STP (SOA Tools)  project, I was curious:
  Are you aware of that work in STP?
  Are JWT approach and the IM for STP fundamentally different?
  Have you coordinated with STP to jointly develop a single model?
 
I ask because ALF uses BPEL for orchestration and might be able to consume what the JWT is building.  So I'm wondering, do I need to follow STP's process modeling work as well, or have the two projects been aware of each other's work, so I only need to be tracking the progress of one?
 
Thanks in advance,
Brian
