    JBoss jBPM is a free, open-source, business process management solution. It enables users to create business processes that coordinate people, applications, and services.

    A business process is a sequence of activities triggered by a certain input that results in a valuable output. Business Process Management is about analyzing those activities in a structured way and eventually supporting their execution with a workflow application.

    Businesses have always tried to manage their processes, but software such as jBPM brings the methodology and management theory to practical life.

    This book shows business analysts how to model business processes in JBoss jBPM and use these models to generate a fully-functioning workflow application. The book shows how business analysts can use the tools to build a solution without the need for Java coding expertise. It also introduces more advanced functionality that can be implemented by Java developers in partnership with the BA.
