Re: [soa-dev] FW: Proposed BPMN 2.0 editor sub-project

Hi Andrea,

Thanks for the feedback. As I mentioned, we are still in the early stages of the proposal writing so any and all feedback is welcomed. I'll have a look at the BPMN 1.1 editor extension points to see where we should start thinking about interfaces.

Hi Bob,

Great to hear about this. I think we really need to move towards BPMN2 tooling within eclipse.

As Adrian, i'm interested too to look at some screen/examples. I'm also interested too to know about  what the current stuff
you're proposing provide in term of interaction and  extensions with other frameworks...

Just to make an example, the current SOA BPMN1.1 editor has some nice features ( tha we use a lot within eBPM ) for example:

1) Provides support for drag and drop files to the BPMN editor...
2) In particular i'm able to do something using EMF annotations on the model after a dnd operation has been performed to the editor.

BTW despite technical details i'm definitely happy to see a BPMN2 editor within eclipse :-)

Hi Bob,

It's great to see this proposal as we do need BPMN 2.0 support in Eclipse and I'm looking forward to finding more about your current prototype. Do you have screenshots/tutorials already available? I will also have a look at the code as soon as I get a chance!

I have taken out the STP lists from the discussion as the STP project no longer exists, and all the former STP list members have moved to the SOA lists. 

One initial question I have about the project is: have you already considered any extension points so that the editor can be leveraged or integrated with other software? From the Mangrove perspective I am particularly interested in transformations to/from the editor and there are existing transformations involving the existing BPMN 1.1 editor from Intalio, so I'm wondering if you guys have any architecture diagrams or dev tutorials for extending or contributing to the code?

Subject: Proposed BPMN 2.0 editor sub-project

Hi all,

We (Red Hat/JBoss) are proposing the creation of a BPMN 2.0-compliant
graphical editor project as a sub-project of STP. We currently have a
working prototype based on graphiti and the MDT BPMN2 meta model
will comprise the initial code contribution.

Until the proposal has been reviewed by the Eclipse Foundation, I'd
like to use the STP news group and these mailing lists to solicit
feedback and involve interested parties in a discussion of this

If anyone's interested, the code is currently being hosted at github
reply here for details if you can't find it.
