Alfresco launches Activiti BPMN 2.0 Business Process Engine


Software, leader in open source enterprise content management (ECM),

today announced the Activiti Business Process Management (BPM) open

source project and the addition of leading BPM expert Tom Baeyens as

Chief Architect, BPM. The Activiti project is a new Apache-licensed open

source BPM platform designed from a blank slate to implement the new

BPMN 2.0 standard from the Object Management Group (OMG) and to support

new technology challenges such as interoperability and the Cloud. Tom

Baeyens, founder and architect of the JBoss jBPM project, and fellow

architect Joram Barrez, join Alfresco to create the first

Apache-licensed BPMN 2.0 engine.

hires JBoss jBPM architects Tom Baeyens & Joram Barrez


An independently-run and branded open source project, Activiti will work

independently of the Alfresco open source ECM system. Activiti will be

built from the ground up to be a light-weight, embeddable BPM engine,

but also designed to operate in scalable Cloud environments. Activiti

will be liberally licensed under Apache License 2.0 to encourage

widespread usage and adoption of the Activiti BPM engine and BPMN 2.0,

which is being finalized as standard by OMG.

Joining Alfresco in the Activiti project is the SpringSource division of

VMware. Alfresco plans to submit the project to the Apache Foundation to

attract a wide variety of BPM experts and drive BPM innovation.

The first alpha release of Activiti indicates the breadth of

capabilities intended for the project, including:

  • Activiti Engine: A simple JAR file containing the Process Virtual

    Machine and BPMN process language implementation;

  • Activiti Probe: A system administration console to control and operate

    the Activiti Engine;

  • Activiti Explorer: A simple end-user application for managing task

    lists and executing process tasks;

  • Activiti Modeler: A browser-based and Ajax-enabled BPMN 2.0 process

    modeling tool designed for business analysts.

"Activiti will be very disruptive in the BPM landscape," said Tom

Baeyens. "The Apache license, feature completeness and developer focus

will bring Activiti to the next level of mass adoption of BPM

technology. Activiti will drive innovation in the industry since common

BPM features will become freely available. By harnessing these ideas and

community effort, Activiti has the potential to become the de facto

standard implementation for BPM and BPMN."

"This is a very exciting development for Spring developers and the Java

community in general," said Adrian Coyler, CTO of SpringSource. "There

has long been a need for an Apache licensed process engine, which has

great utility for many applications. We see Activiti as expanding Java

and open source development into new application areas, particularly in

the Cloud."

"We initiated this project to make content and process technologies more

broadly available and ubiquitous," stated John Newton, CTO of Alfresco

Software. "We did this because, like other open source projects, we

needed a more liberally-licensed process engine. We believe this can

transform the business process industry as Alfresco has done for the ECM


Activiti will become Alfresco's default business process engine,

Alfresco will continue to support jBPM as well as other business process

engines currently integrated with its ECM software. Alfresco will also

offer support, maintenance and indemnity for the Activiti suite

alongside the Alfresco Enterprise Edition.
