Starting with camunda BPM 7.1.0-alpha4 it is now possible to put the bpm-platform.xml file in a different location. This solves the problem that you have to open the camunda bpm platform EAR module and change the configuration file inside the EAR file if you want to customize your settings. Note: This post does not apply to the JBoss Application Server distribution since there the process engine configuration is put directly into the JBoss Application Server configuration file (standalone.xml / domain.xml).

As already mentioned in our last alpha release blog post we are currently working on a BPMN model API to parse, create, edit and write BPMN 2.0 XML files. Last Friday we opened our GitHub repository and have since then created a userguide and some quickstarts. The BPMN model API offers you a simple and straightforward way to interact with an BPMN 2.0 model. It enables you to gather information from an existing model, edit and extend them.
