Eclipse BPMN2 Modeler Project 1.3.0 Release Review

End Date of the Review Period

Reviews run for a minimum of one week. The outcome of the review is decided on this date. This is the last day to make comments or ask questions about this review.




This release wil focus on a better implementation of the "push-down" feature which allows the Activities, Gateways, Events, flows, associations and Artifacts (the "contents") contained in a Sub Process or Pool (the "container") to be "pushed down" into a new tab within the multipage editor.  This provides a better overview of a complex process by moving the details of a Sub Process or Pool onto another page.

The complement operation, "pull-up", does the reverse by moving a container's Activities and flows back to the diagram tab containing the container. 

Also scheduled for this release is better layout handling for collapsing and expanding Sub Processes. Currently, when a Sub Process is expanded, the container figure is simply resized to the the bounds of its contents without regard to sibling figures. A better solution is to adjust the locations of sibling figures so that they will not be obscured by the expanded Sub Process. Similarly, collapsing a Sub Process should also move the sibling figures so that they maintain the same relative position to the collapsed Sub Process.

API Certification

The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".

End of Life

Support for WSIL (Web Services Inspection Language) for web services discovery will be dropped as of this version. The WSIL technology is outdated and has not been used by anyone, as far as we know.
