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.

But integrating and deploying a new tool into your own technical environment is never entirely smooth sailing. In this blog post, we share how Generali’s engineering team was able to troubleshoot issues around running multiple workflow engines in their microservices architecture.

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.

In recent years, React became one of the most popular libraries for building user interfaces. In this blog post, I will show you how to use React forms together with Tasklist.
