Bossa 0.8.0 "XML Rated" is released.

The much expected XML import of case types has finally arrived! As a bonus, it possible to use now the PNK as a graphical case type editor. Look for the editor in the bossa-pnk module in the download page.

Besides that, new administrative functions were added, including the much requested explicit create/close case. And a couple of bugs were fixed.


Bossa What?

Bossa is a workflow engine written in Java. The engine is very fast and lightweight, uses a very expressive Petri net notation to define workflows, does not requires a RDBMS and is very simple to use and to integrate with java applications.

Actually, it was *designed* to be embedded. Therefore, Bossa is organized as a library to be used by server side applications
(especially web oriented ones) that need workflow services.

Go get it!
