BPMN2 Modeler - New & Noteworthy

M2 milestone (September 15, 2012)


This milestone adds some significant new features since M1. The builds are available here for Eclipse indigo (3.7) and helios (3.6).
  • BPMN2 Project Nature and Validation Builder
    A project builder is now used to perform batch validation of the BPMN files. Full validation for BPMN 2.0 compliance is still not complete, but the framework for adding new validation logic is in place.
  • Problem Markers
    Problem View markers and figure decorators with tooltip text on the drawing canvas as well as the Property Sheet View have been added.
  • Outline View
    Support for an Outline View has been added. This includes tree view outlines for both the BPMN2 element structure (the "business logic model") and the BPMN Diagram structure (the "Digram Interchange model") as well as a thumbnail view of the editor drawing canvas.
  • Property Sheets
    New Property Sheet tabs have been added to support Choreography and Collaboration diagram activities.
