  • Authorizing Process Access and Execution with JBoss jBPM

    Centralized BPM deployments can greatly benefit from the ability to control access to process definitions and instances ensuring that users can use and monitor only a set of processes that they are authorized for. In this article Boris Lublinsky shows how to extend JBoss jBPM to define and support process access authorization.

  • Book Excerpt and Interview: Dynamic SOA and BPM: Best Practices for Business Process Management and SOA Agility

    Boris Lublinsky interviews Marc Fiammante as part of a review of Marc' new book, Dynamic SOA and BPM: Best Practices for Business Process Management and SOA Agility. The book is based on many years of practical experience obtained during dozens of enterprise SOA implementations and covers major steps of such implementations

  • WebSphere vs. .NET: IBM and Microsoft Go Head to Head

    After carrying out a number of benchmarks, Microsoft concluded that .NET offers better performance and cost-performance ratio than WebSphere. IBM rebutted Microsoft’s findings and carried out other tests proving that WebSphere is superior to .NET. Microsoft responded by rejecting some of IBM’s claims as false and repeating the tests on different hardware with different results.

  • Supporting Advanced User Interaction Patterns in jBPM

    Boris Lublinsky discusses task management in the jBPM and then demonstrates how to implement four advanced user interaction patterns(4-eyes principle, nomination, escalation, and chained execution) using JBoss and the jBPM. He also notes the advantages and limitations of these patterns.

  • Orchestrating Long Running Activities with JBoss / JBPM

    Orchestrating activities that extend over very long periods (hours, days, weeks) is a common design issue. Although technically BPM engines are specifically design to ideal with this issue, they do so with standalone processes with corresponding issues arising from callback mechanisms. This article we will show one of the approaches to use JBoss jBPM for solving this problem.

  • Using JBoss ESB and JBPM for Implementing VMS Solutions

    In a new article, Boris Lublinsky discusses how the JBoss middleware platform, specifically JBoss ESB and jBPM (JBoss Business Process Management) can be used to integrate both internal and third-party services to deliver composite services and content in customer-specific forms, including Web services, WAP, portals, and more.

  • Virtual Panel on Cloud Computing

    In this virtual panel, InfoQ wants to find out from leading cloud experts what are the benefits brought by cloud computing as well as the constraints in using them, what is better to use, a public or a private cloud, is the cloud interoperability needed, what is the difference between providing infrastructure or a platform, and how can a client enforce regulatory compliance.

  • Mainframe Integration with JBoss ESB and LegStar

    In this article we look at how the open source JBossESB has been used to integrate legacy COBOL CICS applications without necessarily having to rely on XML and Web Services stacks.

  • 2009 Trends and Directions for WebSphere

    In an exclusive InfoQ article, IBM's WebSphere CTO Jerry Cuomo outlines the 10 top technology direction he envisions for the WebSphere product line in 2009, including Business Mash-ups, a Middleware-as-a-Service offering, cloud support, WAS.NEXT and REST support in multiple products.

  • Beyond SOA: A New Type of Framework for Dynamic Business Applications - Part II

    In this second part of their article, the authors explore the architecture of Dynamic Business Applications and introduce the concept of a Resource Container. They demonstrate how this architecture can be layered on top of JEE and how it impacts implementation productivity.

  • An Introduction to Virtualization

    It is easy to think that virtualization applies only to servers. In reality the recent resurgence of the concept is being applied at a variety of levels including networking, storage, and application infrastructure. In this introduction to the topic InfoQ dives into each area describing its uses as well as benefits and disadvantages.

  • Book Excerpt and Review: OSWorkflow

    OSWorkflow by Diego Adrian Naya Lazo discusses the open-source OSWorkflow, a Java-based workflow engine. The book's publisher, Packt Publishing, also provided InfoQ with an excerpt from Chapter 4 of the book, entitled Using OSWorkflow in your Application. InfoQ spoke with Naya Lazo about the areas that the book covers and about OSWorkflow in general.
