We are excited to release the first alpha of the Camunda External Task Client (Java).

A Workflow Engine typically calls Service Tasks actively. The Java client allows to break with this principle: remote and independent Service Task workers continuously fetch tasks, perform the work and share the result with the Workflow Engine once the work has been done.

Creating a 3D renderer for BPMN

Written by Sebastian Stamm on , under Modeling category.

BPMN Diagrams are usually displayed as twodimensional images. A top-down view of the process, that focuses on readability and is practical for day-to-day work. Those of you who were at BPMCon 2017 will probably remember the interactive experience “Be A Token” where you could walk around in a BPMN process in virtual reality. This blog post describes how the 3D rendering of bpmn processes is built with Javascript using bpmn-js and A-Frame.

If you missed BPMCon or did not get the chance to play it in virtual reality, there is an online version of “Be A Token” which can be played in the browser.

Custom Tasklist examples
