About jBPM

jBPM is a toolkit for building business applications to help automate business processes and decisions.

jBPM can be used as standalone service or embedded in custom service. It does not mandate any of the frameworks to be used, it can be successfully used in

  • traditional JEE applications - war/ear deployments
  • SpringBoot or Thorntail (formerly known as WildFly Swarm) - uberjar deployments
  • standalone java programs

jBPM is open source software, released under the Apache Software License. It is written in 100% pure Java™, runs on any JVM and is available in the Maven Central repository too.
