I am happy to share that our super-awesome camunda BPM Online Training is finally available. It consists of a number of video tutorials and exercices, and also includes weekly web sessions with our experienced and remarkably good-looking consultants, where you can discuss any questions or issues you might have. Go get it here: http://camunda.com/bpm/training/online/ Would be great to get your feedback on this - if you think the training is a good idea, please let us know.
One of our largest customers approached us with the following requirement: "We want to implement BPMN processes, such that these processes work with rich XML and JSON data objects, but we are not forced to deploy custom Java Code." Requirement (1) is a very common one. Many of our users and customers work with rich XML and JSON data objects. To do this, many of them implement custom Java Classes and use technologies like JAX-B or Jackson for mapping XML and JSON to Java.
Our tireless consulting team will publish a new online-training for camunda BPM very soon. We’ve been asked for that again and again, which is why I am more than happy that it’s finally available. There is a little sneak preview available already: You can enjoy the first module (basically a video tutorial) for free! Get it here: http://camunda.com/landing/camunda-beginners/ And have fun!
Sometimes you need to include multiple camunda BPM maven dependencies in your project. The apache maven best practice is to use a bom ("Bill of Materials") which ensures that you get the matching versions for multiple dependencies. For camunda bpm we prepared the camunda-bom to make sure you get the right versions for all camunda dependencies and our transitive dependencies. First, import the camunda-bom in the dependencyManagement section of your maven pom:
Roman and Sebastian have written a brand new getting started guide for camunda and Java EE. The guide is a detailed step-by-step tutorial about how to setup your Java EE 6 application for camunda BPM and BPMN. It has examples about how to use JSF for implementing Task Forms, CDI and EJB as a programming model for the business logic and JPA for custom persistence. The source code of the tutorial can be found on github.

On March 14 we merged the online community BPM-Netzwerk.de with more than 10,000 members into the new camunda BPM network. I personally created the first version of this community in 2004, and together with Robert Emsbach grew the community in the German speaking area. I learned a lot about community building during that time, especially in the BPM world. Now camunda takes over and will bring our network to the next level: Firstly, we want to grow our community outside the German speaking area as well, and secondly we want to explore new possibilities for discussing BPM online, that should go beyond the typical instruments we already know from general virtual communities.
