Extending the BPMN Viewer in Cockpit

BPMN diagrams in Cockpit are rendered and displayed by the bpmn.js toolkit. Bpmn.js can be extended with additional modules as well as so called moddle extensions.

An additional module refers to the extension of the feature set, whereas a moddle extension makes it possible to add custom attributes and elements to the BPMN 2.0 model.

Starting with this release, it is possible to use the extension mechanism of bpmn.js through Camunda Cockpit to customize the default behavior of the BPMN viewer.

To extend the BPMN Viewer, the file app/cockpit/scripts/config.js needs to be adjusted as follows:

var camCockpitConf = {
  ...
  bpmnJs: {
    additionalModules: {
      // a JavaScript file, which represents a module
      myCustomModule: 'my-custom-module/module'
    },
    moddleExtensions: {
      // a JSON file, which represents a moddle extension
      myCustomModdleExtension: 'my-custom-moddle/moddle'
    }
  }
  ...
};

For further information, please see the documentation of Cockpit and bpmn.js.

Support for Java 9 / 10 & 11

Camunda BPM is now on the cutting-edge of Java since this release brings support for Java 9 & 10 as well as for Java 11 – which has been released just a few days ago.

What’s Next?

The minor release of Camunda BPM 7.10 is coming this fall (November 30, 2018).
