Imixs Software Solutions story was published on this blog 4 years ago. They provide an open source human-based workflow software that can be integrated in any Java application. They have migrated from Java EE 5/GlassFish v2 to Java EE 6/GlassFish 3.1 since then.

EJB 3.1 Lite and JPA 2.0 that makes it much easier to integrate the workflow engine into Web and Enterprise applications. The workflow modeler is built on top of Eclipse and the changes can be deployed during runtime without restart of the container.
