JWT Tutorial

On this page you can find information on how to use the applications of the Java Workflow Tooling kit. In addition to several introductive articles, also some of the more advanced topics like extending JWT's meta-model are discussed.


This document shows the installation and usage of the JWT Workflow Editor (WE) process modeling tool and how to extend and modify it to suit your needs. In addition we show how to execute and how to actually simulate or execute a process model.

We try to cover all aspects of JWT that are of interest for the user and reader of these documents. If there is another topic that you are interested in that is not covered in this description, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

If you're looking for technical information on how to extend JWT using the defined extension points, this can be found at Extending JWT.

This tutorial is currently adapted for JWT 0.6
