JWT EclipseSummit2009

Revision as of 10:50, 13 August 2009 by (Talk | contribs) (Views on process and workflow models)

This page contains resources about planned presentations which might be submitted to Eclipse Summit Europe 2009. We tend to submit several (probably long) talks and let the program chair decide which one is most interesting to the audience. Typical topics are:

  • New in Galileo: A description about JWT - "walkthrough"
  • Aspect-oriented Modeling (the ideas of JWT, but also others)
  • View mechanism (maybe together with BPMN2?)

New in Galileo: A walk through JWT

  • Presenters: Florian Lautenbacher and Christian Saad
  • Category: New & Noteworthy
  • Type: Long talk
  • Abstract: The Eclipse project Java Workflow Tooling (JWT) provides a toolset that not only allows to model business processes but also to execute them on process and workflow engines. In addition to the EMF/GEF based workflow modeler JWT offers users adaptable and extensible tools for code generation and transformation thus supporting different industry standard such as BPMN, XPDL or WSBPEL.

Fitted with a flexible mechanism that allows to customize the underlying EMF model and with support for all kind of views, vendors can build tools on top of JWT for the development, deployment, execution and monitoring of business processes suited for their domain. In this presentation we give an introduction about the possibilities of JWT by demonstrating the implementation of an example process from design to execution.

Aspect-oriented Modeling

  • Presenters: Marc Dutoo and Florian Lautenbacher
  • Category: Modeling
  • Type: Long talk
  • Abstract: In this talk we discuss current shortcomings in of EMF and more specifically UML and show how these can be dealt with using research approaches in the area of aspect-oriented modeling (AOM). Several implementations based on Eclipse products and projects (such as the aspect-oriented extension mechanism in the configuration profiles of the technology project Java Workflow Tooling, JWT) will be presented. An outlook about current standardization approaches in this area by the OMG completes this session.

Views on process and workflow models

  • Presenters: Florian Lautenbacher and Christian Saad
  • Category: Other
  • Type: Long talk
  • Abstract: The area of Business Process Management is characterized by a wide variety of different standards and notations like BPMN or EPCs and an even bigger amount of tools. The EMF/GEF-based Workflow Editor of the Eclipse Java Workflow Tooling (JWT) project addresses this issue by providing the possibility to adapt the visual representation of its underlying metamodel to the needs of the user. This allows not only to avoid the need for different editors but also to provide each user, e.g. domain or technical experts, with the features relevant for their domain.

In this presentation we demonstrate the development of new views along with the concepts implemented in the Workflow Editor that allow this kind of flexible adjustment.
