Flow4J vs. enfinity pipelines

Alex Greif has released version 0.8.1 of Flow4J-Eclipse. This release implements the feature request „friendly labels“ which adds the possibility to declare a description for Decision Flowlets for more human like readability of the if-statements.

Flow4J is an Eclipse Plug-in for modeling process flows in a drag and drop manner. A process flow can contain process steps (I call them flowlets), which can be linked together to a complex flow. All flows can contain the following types of flowlets:

  • Control Flowlets like Start-, Decision- and Jump-Flowlets which are configurable in Eclipse, and tell „how“ the process should flow.
  • Task Flowlets accomplish a specific task that is wrapped in a java class. The wrapped functionality can be everything like an EJB call or even JNI call.
