The Collaborative Community of BPMN enthusiasts

Written by Niall Deehan on , under Community category.

This month 10 years ago, BPMN 2.0 was finalized and adopted as a standard, which in itself is something Camunda is happy to celebrate.But what has happened in the BPM space in the meantime is probably the most interesting thing about BPMN 2.0. A whole ecosystem and community has grown from the standard. While it originally came into existence to give the process building community a unified language, it sparked a lot of independent innovation.

But manually redrawing process flows is tedious and time consuming, especially if there are many or complex processes to convert. In this tutorial we’ll step you through a utility that can help you generate a BPMN compliant process that can serve as a starting point for your Pega to Camunda conversion.

Camunda BPM - Session Management in Cloud Environments

Written by Lars Lange on , under Community category.
In the last few years we’ve noticed many of our users are migrating from bare-metal infrastructures to cloud-based ones. While the cloud has overcome several limitations of the traditional infrastructure, other problems arise when deploying your microservices in environments that have the possibility to scale up and down dynamically based on workload. When deploying Camunda BPM, the first problem that you will encounter will be, most probably, session management.While this is easily solvable in traditional environments by using sticky sessions, the same solution does not apply when you deal with cloud environments like, Kubernetes.

How to run Camunda on Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF)

Written by Bernd Rücker on , under Community category.

Camunda is a popular open source workflow engine that’s very lightweight and developer friendly. If you’re developing in Java you can use it embedded e.g. in Spring Boot applications. Otherwise you simply leverage its REST APIs and language clients, so Camunda can also be used in other programming languages. It can be integrated with basically every technology, including e.g. Kafka, RabbitMQ, REST or SOAP.
