Posted: 28 January, 2011 in Activiti, jBPM

A lot has happened the last months in the field of opensource bpm(n2). Activiti getting a jumpstart in many areas, jBPM4 getting ‘killed’ but jBPM in general getting a relaunch with Droolsflow/jBPM5 and Bonita quietly getting better and better. It might not surprise you that I have a strong personal opinion about how things went, but no, this won’t be a rant, since I think nobody gains anything by that and I do not want people I like to feel bad (cause they shouldn’t) nor do I want to diminish any company. Yet, you have to make choices now and then. (more…)


Not really first post…

Posted: 24 January, 2011 in Uncategorized

Or is it? If you have a last post somewhere, you do not really have a first post. On the other hand, it is a first post in this blog which I cannot even call a new blog since it was opened long ago. It was  only used to have an account with my nickname to post on a different blog.

So what can you expect here?

“Answers to everything but life and the universe”

Contrary to what you might think it is not only about technical things. it will certainly be more.

  • Sometimes it will be funny (at least I’ll try to be :-))
  • Every now and then it will be philosophical.
  • From time to time I will just rant, complain or shout to get things of my chest
  • Occasionally there will be beauty, compliments or admiration to share

Just do not expect any answer to life and the universe here, since I am not the one to provide those for you. Heck, I’m not even sure if anybody/anything can. In any other area I’ll try to be as helpful as I can.
