My first BPMN process

Let's create our first Hello World process.

We first need to create a project, and a diagram.

After giving a filename to you diagram, you will see two new files appearing in the project.

You can double-click on the bpmn_diagram file to open it as an editor. The diagram initially contains one pool and a task.

Tips and tricks

Reusing the modeler

Connecting to the modeler

Create a BPMN factory that generates fragments of BPMN imported into a diagram. In this scenario, a BPEL process is instrumented into a BPMN pool. It exposes the sequences and gateways of the BPEL as BPMN shapes. It keeps annotations that link to the original BPEL markup. See https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=171084
