Human based workflow from Imixs Software Solutions using Java EE 6 and GlassFish

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.

Migrating to Java EE 6 makes their architecture more flexible and removes restrictions on scalability and transactions. 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.

Try the bits at or more details on their community website.

Make sure you read the updated Imixs detailed questionnaire for further information on how Java EE 6 and GlassFish 3.1 is used to serve their need.

In Medellín and elsewhere, Probendi and GlassFish help geo-reference emergencies

GlassFish seems pretty popular among ISVs (Software Vendors) and Probendi is yet another example of that. This company out of Bogotá, Colombia offers an emergency and security support system (Critical Governance™) providing real-time information based on its Knowledge Management System (KMS), Geographical Information System (GIS) and Decision Support System (DSS) modules. A mobile phone application available for Android, iPhone and Java ME devices complements the platform.

This software was built to deal with emergencies and architected using Java EE 6 with no additional framework and is now in production at half-a-dozen customers using GlassFish 3.0.1 which was selected to "take full advantage of the features and capabilities of a Java Enterprise application server". You'll find more details on this production story in our traditional detailled questionnaire.

Probendi Inc.'s Director, Daniele Di Salvo explains in this questionnaire that they have 80 web applications and that the feature they like best about GlassFish is " that when we need to do some changes on the server, we don't have to restart it". Hopefully Probendi will also find value in the new GlassFish 3.1 set of features (clustering, centralized admin, application versioning, etc.).

GFOS software integrates your company data with GlassFish

GFOS logo

No, GFOS does not stand for GlassFish Open Source :) Rather, GFOS is an ISV out of Germany developing software for time administration of personnel, input planning, access control, business data assembling, and production management, all with visual tools.

GFOS chose to develop the next generation of their X/TIME software family using standard Java EE 5 and came quite naturally to GlassFish. This should enable GFOS to do even better than the current thousands of deployments, 1000 customers, 11 languages, and 18 countries.

Make sure you read the detailed questionnaire. You'll find out that the top GlassFish features for GFOS are the admin console, tool integration, and stability. You'll also read about which open source frameworks were used in their development process, the variety of supported platforms, and more.

Imixs Software Solutions: more human workflow with GlassFish

Imixs Software Solution specializes in human-based workflow software. This certainly fits into the SOA model but with an emphasis on business processes as opposed to more technical and lover-level services integration.

IMIXS has put its 5-year experience into this open source Imixs IX workflow implementation which was built on top of the Java EE 5 platform and GlassFish. Specifically, Java Persistence (JPA), EJB 3.0, and Web Services API (JAX-WS) are the main new technologies used by Imixs. The workflow modeler is built on top of Eclipse while the client part if fully AJAX-enabled.

Pre-releases of GlassFish v2 have been put to work with the web console, auto-deployment, scalability, and full Java EE 5 conformance listed as the top features justifying GlassFish over other application servers.
