Release Notes: This release delivers the first version of the new Web BPMN designer. It is now possible to design, change, and deploy processes directly from a Web browser using the popular BPMN 2.0 notation. The engine is still 100% standards compliant with the support of WS-BPEL2.0. This version adds the introduction of Human Task features following the BPEL4People and WS-HumanTask standards. Finally, the Orchestra Console gives more possibilities to monitor and administrate your processes such as: BPMN and BPEL graphical monitoring, a Reporting module, Simulation possibilities, etc.
Release Notes: This version ships a technology preview of the Web 2.0 BPMN process designer. The current version is already fully functional. The Web console now has a BPMN process view of the processes deployed using the designer, a BPEL process view and graphical monitoring, pagination of the lists proposed by the console, a new tab to manage pending messages and allow you to delete them, and a new tab to manage dead jobs and give the possibility to retry or delete them. Bug fixes and performance improvements on the engine have also been added.
Release Notes: Important performance improvements and bug corrections were made, especially on the clustering and versioning combined functionalities.
Release Notes: This version brings the possibility to manage process versioning.
Release Notes: The main new functionnality of this version is the brand new Web Console. The console is by default available in the tomcat packages but it is also possible to download it standalone and connect it to an existing Orchestra engine. In addition to this console, some performance improvements has been added to the engine to support a high workload environment.
Release Notes: Integration with Camel (http://camel.apache.org) was added. This opens a wide range a possibilities, like calling non-WS services (sending an email, a JMS message, calling a local Java class) directly from your process. It is now possible to use Orchestra in a cluster mode. This gives load balancing and fail-over capabilities. It is now possible to call sub-processes directly without going through the WS stack. Orchestra automatically detects if a call is related to another process, enhancing the performance of this type of call.
Release Notes: The main focus of this release is on the OSGi packaging. CXF and Axis are now integrated as OSGi bundles and the Tomcat packages have been modified to use the OSGi packaging. This provides a lot of flexibility in the choice of Web Service implementation you want to use. The other main feature added is related to the management of "dead" Jobs. There is now a default execution that kills the instances that have a dead job, but Orchestra also provides the possibility to interact with those jobs using the API.
Release Notes: This maintenance release does not provide any major enhancements, but is deployable on the Java EE Application Server JOnAS. It provides a few bugfixes, including a fix for management of waiting clients when the process ends with a fault, and provides major performance improvements and support for XSD importation.
Release Notes: In this version, you will be able to use the last major BPEL statement that was not yet supported. EventHandlers are now available, making Orchestra fully compatible with the BPEL 2.0 standard. To facilitate installation, a graphical installer is now available.
Release Notes: The main improvement in this version is the integration of a new Web Service framework. Orchestra is now available packaged with CXF. Aside from the small performance improvement compared to the Axis version, Orchestra-CXF has support for the WS-Addressing and WS-Reliable Messaging Web Services. There is also a new version of the Orchestra Console, as well as a preview demonstration of the future Web 2.0 Orchestra Designer.
