The camunda Hypothesis

As a reaction to Scott Francis recommendable blog post “The Zero Code Hypothesis“, I published my own two cents about that topic.

camunda forks Activiti and launches camunda BPM

I am proud to announce that today camunda launches a new open source BPM project: camunda BPM. At this juncture we part ways with the Activiti project which we have contributed to since the first days.

Leaving Activiti is a sad but necessary step for us. Starting as a consulting company, we have built a customer base of 250+ in little over 4 years. Last year, we entered the BPM vendor business with the camunda fox BPM platform. Our success and the positive feedback we got from customers made us realize that we have to go all-in. Today, we drop the …

Video of the BPM cookshow online

Process to implement

End of january there was the so called “BPM cookshow” at the OOP conference in Munic (Germany). The idea was simple but really good: The same process had to be implemented live from three well known BPMS vendors (SAP, Oracle and camunda fox :-)). No prepared components were allowed and the audience could watch all three candidates simultaneously on three beamers. The process orchestrated an existing REST/JSON and SOAP/WebService (from the internet) and we had to handle an asynchronous callback with correlation. Today I post the video from the cookshow (German) as well as an screencast …

Exemplary questions for OCEB exams

Since 2011 we offer our training for becoming a BPM expert certified by OMG (OCEB). You can attend the course in Berlin and take the exam right away.

Our trainees often ask us for exemplary questions, but we are – of course – not allowed to share the real exam questions with them, left alone to publish them anywhere. That’s why my colleague Matthias has developed some nice exemplary questions that are similar to the ones asked in the exam, so you can get an idea what lies ahead. Right now we already have exemplary questions for OCEB Fundamental and …

camunda fox 6.2 released

Last Friday we released camunda fox 6.2. This release centered around two main issues: a completely new version of our BPMN 2.0 roundtrip tool cycle and adding the IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.0 and 8.5 to our supported environments. I think we perfectly follow the “Write once, run anywhere” idea of the overall Java platform as you can use various BPMN 2.0 modeling tools in your development approach together with camunda fox (see BPMN 2.0 works: Integrating 8 different BPMN modelers with camunda fox) and later on deploy the automated process on almost any Java environment …

Migrating from jBPM to Activiti


Please note that this blog post is outdated, since we forked Activiti in March 2013 and started a new Open Source BPM project called camunda BPM ( You will find this topic and loads of more best practices, blueprints etc. there, so you should just have a look 🙂

If you know JBoss jBPM 3 or 4 and have a look at Activiti you may discover that its Java API and process engine features are quite familiar to you. This is due to the fact, that Activiti is the technical successor of the jBPM 3 and 4 development line. It has …
