about processes and engines

Pat is a subsversive restafarian

Sandy almost called the security to get Pat bounced out of Architecture & Process 2008. I’m joking, she just wondered what was Pat doing there.

If you consider the fact that “Architecture and Process” website is hosted at, then RESTful BPM is a nice fit for this event.

If you’re still not convinced, go and read Jason’s reaction and Pat’s reply.

Congrats to Pat Cappelaere for his success with RESTful WfXML.

I’m working on it as well (with my limited vision), after Kisha, I’ve moved on to Ruote-Rest.

Too many links.

  1. Aha, hidden in the link to “Pat’s reply” I read “The OGC demonstrated three interoperable workflow engines during OWS-5 using WfXML-R inclusing OpenWFE and a BPEL engine” — which if I understand correctly was in July 2007? I didn’t realise these efforts dated back to 2007 or even earlier?

    Being new to OpenWFE, I need to catch up reading older blog entries!

  2. Hello Arjan,

    OpenWFE started at the end of 2001. OpenWFEru was started at the end of 2006 and yes, Pat’s efforts date back to approximately April 2007.

    I still have to reply to that one :

    I hadn’t realize I could answer it, and I was thinking you were still enjoying your week-end…

  3. Yup, it is still weekend here — but i did in fact upgrade my development environment to use the latest code from GitHub today :-)

    But: no need to excuse yourself for not replying!
