Imixs-Workflow

Imixs-Workflow is an open source workflow engine based on the Java Enterprise Architecture (JEE). The Imixs-Workflow project provides components to build human-centric workflow applications within a flexible and robust framework. The business logic can be modeled and executed using the Business Process Modelling Notation - BPMN 2.0 standard.

See the Project Home for more information.

Imixs-RESTful API

Imixs-Workflow provides a RESTful API to integrate the Imixs-Workflow engine into microservice architecture. In such an architecture the Imixs-Workflow engine can be deployed as a separate microservice managing human-centric workflow tasks.

How to Build

Imixs-Workflow can be build with Maven. All artifacts are provided in the maven central repository.

This is an example how to add a maven dependency of imixs-workflow into your own project:

<dependencies> 
   .....
    <!-- Imixs Workflow -->
    <dependency>
        <groupId>org.imixs.workflow</groupId>
        <artifactId>imixs-workflow-engine</artifactId>
        <version>${org.imixs.workflow.version}</version>
    </dependency>
    <dependency>
        <groupId>org.imixs.workflow</groupId>
        <artifactId>imixs-workflow-jax-rs</artifactId>
        <version>${org.imixs.workflow.version}</version>
    </dependency>
    <dependency>
        <groupId>org.imixs.workflow</groupId>
        <artifactId>imixs-workflow-faces</artifactId>
        <version>${org.imixs.workflow.version}</version>
    </dependency>
</dependencies>
...

Sample Application

The Imixs-Workflow Sample Application demonstrates the Imixs-Workflow engine embedded into a simple JSF Web Application. The Sample Application can be used as a scaffold for custom projects.
