Primary tabs

Release Date: 
Wednesday, June 22, 2016

(unchanged since 1.3 release, see diagram of components there in slide 5)

JWT comprises the following components :

  • Metamodel, including the automated Converter of workflow models to newer version
  • Workflow Editor (WE), along with its Plugins (such as BPMN, UML-AD & EPC views but also helpers & documentation) and Conf (allows to define aspect oriented extensions to JWT metamodel and editor)
  • Transformations, to various other representations (Eclipse BPMN Editor), tools (Eclipse Mangrove, properties) and executable processes (XPDL, Bonita, jPDL)
  • Runtime : Runtime API and framework to help integrating JWT with any workflow server
  • Workflow Administration & Monitoring (WAM) : a workflow monitoring tool and the API it requires the workflow server to implement

(putting aside the "Releng" component for CBI & Maven Tycho-based automated build, which is infrastructure only and not in product)

More on the wiki and website.


This new JWT release will be fully backward-compatible with the previous version regarding all interfaces such as:

  • APIs
  • Eclipse workspace


  • All strings presented to users are externalized
  • Localizations are prebundled for English and German, further locales can be added (notably French) thanks to Eclipse Babel which has been integrated
Target Environments: 

JWT is tested the most on Eclipse 4.6 (Neon) using JRE 1.8 and Linux Ubuntu 32 bits, but should work on other platforms.

This release is part of Neon.
