The STP BPMN Modeler

The STP BPMN modeler is a BPMN diagram editor which is currently developed as a sub-project of SOA Tools Platform. The team counts two committers, Alex Boisvert and Hugues Malphettes, and a contributor Antoine Toulme.

They all work for Intalio, Inc.


Definition of BPMN

Origins of the modeler


My first BPMN process

Creating the diagram

Let's create our first Hello World process. Let's create a simple project: NewProjectForBpmn.png

And give it an appropriate name. SettingProjectName.png

You can create a new BPMN diagram by selecting the Examples category in the creation wizard. NewBpmnDiagram.png

The wizard is very straight-forward, all you need is to indicate a folder and a file name. SettingNewBpmnDiagram.png

After clicking on Finish, you will see two new files appearing in the project. TwonewBpmnFiles.png

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


You can use the palette to drop elements on the diagram. The palette can either be shown as a different view, or attached to the diagram.


Tips and tricks

Change activityType Rich Copy/Paste to document. Linking documents to the diagram.

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
