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

Written by Felix Müller on , under Camunda BPM category.
Camunda’s flexible architecture allows users to combine the workflow engine with custom user interfaces. The Camunda BPM Platform itself comes with a default Tasklist. But what happens if we don’t like the approach or the technology used behind the default Camunda Tasklist? How can we build our own Tasklist that leverages Front-End frameworks and technologies that we have chosen as a user rather than Camunda? Throughout this blogpost I will showcase how different Front-End frameworks can be used together with Camunda BPM to build a custom Tasklist.

Written by Jakob Freund on , under Company category.
Here is a summary of how the Camunda company did in 2017. I hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.

This year, we accelerated even more and grew the Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) by 89%.

Custom Queries

Written by Yana Vasileva on , under Execution category.
Why Custom Queries? The process engine offers a pretty straightforward and easy to use Java Query API. If you want to build a task list you just write something like this: @Inject private TaskService taskService; public List<Task> getAllTasks() { return taskService.createTaskQuery().taskAssignee("bernd").list(); } Easy as it is, there are basically two catches: You can only build queries that the API supports. You cannot add constraints on your domain objects. Let us give you a simple use case example, which we implemented in the custom-queries example: You have a process variable “customer” holding the customerId You have your own entity “Customer” with all the details Custom Query Domain Example So far, a pretty common situation (please note that the object diagram has been simplified to show the relevant aspects and doesn’t precisely correspond to the implementation classes).
