Reficio™ - Reestablish your software!

E-point prize for the best thesis is mine :)

I am really excited to inform that the master thesis written by Marek and me was awarded for the second time! Today, our dissertation titled “Generic ESB Monitoring Architecture Compliant with JBI” has received the e-point prize for the best thesis on JEE Internet solutions. The official results are published on the e-point site (in Polish). See the screenshot attached below:

Few months earlier it had been also awarded by the Polish Information Processing Society – I blogged about it HERE. On that occasion, I would like to thank Marek for great and successful cooperation! As far as I know it was the last contest to which we submitted our dissertation so in the nearest future I will publish its content in the Internet. Stay tunned :)

Spring integration in jBPM 4

When I was supposed to use the fourth version of jBPM for the first time I couldn’t find a sufficient documentation concerning the integration with Spring. I have also seen that there are many questions regarding that issue on forums or discussion lists. Despite the fact that there are some entries on Andries Inzé Blog or in jBPM official documentation which actually outline that problem I felt a lack of a sample project archetype. Something that I could download, build and take the first shot right away!

After few months I found some time to make this dream come true :) as I have created a sample Spring+jBPM+Maven2 project. All details of the integration are described in my developers notebook under the entry: Spring integration in jBPM 4. The article briefly shows how to set up:

  • Maven Project Configuration [pom.xml]
  • Logging configuration [log4j.xml]
  • jBPM Configuration [jbpm.cfg.xml]
  • and Spring Configuration [applicationContext.xml]

It also outlines how to write and execute a sample test case.

That is all what you need to start playing with jPBM in your favorite IDE(A)! More on this is comming soon! Stay tunned!
