j5 BPMN Workflow Configuration


There are many tools available for creating and editing BPMN workflows. In order to integrate BPMN with the j5 system, j5 offers a tool called Gemsbok.

Gemsbok is an open source project for editing BPMN workflow diagrams. It is a web-based Java application which runs separately from j5 and requires other frameworks to be installed.

This section provides instructions for installing Gemsbok. This section covers the installation of JDK, Tomcat, Apache Ant, the downloading and compiling of Gemsbok, and the configuration of the Tomcat web app. A high-level overview of the relationships between the required software packages can be seen below.
