The Job Announcement is a web application built in order to showcase a business process-centric application based on the Java EE 6 technology stack and the camunda BPM Platform running on the JBoss Application Server 7. An online version of the showcase can be found at http://the-job-announcement.com/.

Supporting Process

The application supports the process of creating a job position announcement starting from the need of finding a new employee. A manager can start the process by requesting a new job announcement giving a brief description of her needs. She will then submit her request to the Human Resources department which will review and create a detailed job announcement with an optional Twitter and/or Facebook post. The job announcement can be reviewed and approved (or not) by the original manager. Eventually, the job announcement is published to Twitter and Facebook.

Two BPMN 2.0 business processes definitions implemented the abovementioned process (see below).
