about processes and engines

on the JRuby front

jruby.pngNicolas has been tracking JRuby and testing OpenWFEru on this platform. He had submitted a few patches that turned “OpenWFEru on JRuby” from a big NO to a firm Yes. A business process engine is quite a demanding beast.

This week, JRuby seems to have made big progresses (we test with JRuby trunk, JRuby 1.0.1 is a “no go”), OpenWFEru almost runs perfectly on it (except for a few baroque test cases). The performance are good (slightly lesser).

See Nicolas’ post for the full details.

Time to think about giving true flexibility to some business processes, currently hard-coded in Java here at work.
