Overview

JWT aims to provide both build-time and runtime generic tools for workflow engines. It is composed of several tools: the WE (Workflow Editor) to model the workflows and WAM (Workflow engine Administration and Monitoring tool) for monitoring and deployment. JWT also aims to provide generic APIs for defining and administrating business processes, in order to achieve said genericity. Addtionally, we will provide the user with several transformations: a user can start modeling his/her processes in BPMN, transform those to JWT, enrich them with technical details and then deploy them on a process engine. Therefore, we develop transformations from BPMN to JWT, from JWT to BPMN, from JWT to XPDL, from JWT to STP-IM, etc.
