jBoss / Red Hat recently released a new version of its business process management system (BPM), jBPM version 5, which supports the new BPMN 2.0 (Business Process Model and Notation).

jBPM 5.0 integrates Eclipse tooling for developers, allowing creation, advanced debugging and process deployment. It also includes a process repository that allows you to manage process definitions using a browser user interace. jBPM 5.0 is the first major release of the system since its creator and jBPM Lead Tom Baeyens left Red Hat last year. Baeyens moved to Alfresco to become Activiti Project Lead; Alfresco also supports a free and open source BPM called Activiti.

The Red Hat / jBoss jBPM 5 can be downloaded from SourceForge and the Alfresco release of Activiti 5.2 can be downloaded from the web site; both are released under the Apache 2 licence.

Developers interested in jBPM can register for a jBoss Webinar taking place on 24 February. Speakers for the Webinar will be Prakash Aradhya, Sr. Product Manager, Red Hat, and Kris Verlaenen, jBPM 5 Project Lead. There is also a jBoss web page on "Getting started with jBPM5".
