Flow4J is an Eclipse plugin for modeling process flows in a drag and drop manner. A process flow can contain process steps (I call them flowlets), which can be linked together to a complex flow. All flows can contain the following types of flowlets:
· Control Flowlets like Start-, Decision- and Jump-Flowlets which are configurable in Eclipse, and tell "how" the process should flow.
After designing the flows in the Eclipse Plug-in, the flow's java source code is automatically created, and is immediately ready for compilation and deployment in a java web/application.
The flow's generated java source code is highly optimized and lightning fast by
· avoiding unnecessary method calls
· no object instantiations at all in the flow's runtime behaviour. Beware, I'm talking about the flow's code and not about your code that is inside the task flowlets!
Web/applications can execute flows in two ways:
1. From inside any java code
2. Triggered by a HTTP request if the flow is deployed in a web application
What's New in This Release:
· Bugfix release. Dragging a flowlet where the flowlet and its label is selected, translated the labels position to a wrong place.
