Spring Boot starters for jBPM and KIE Server

jBPM supports Spring (and Spring Boot) for quite a while but it didn’t provide it based on Spring Boot way – auto configuration and starters.

With upcoming release (7.6.0) this has changed. Now there are fully featured starters (based on auto configuration modules) for:

  • jBPM embedded
  • fully featured KIE Server
  • rules only KIE Server (Drools)
  • rules, processes and cases KIE Server (jBPM)
  • planning KIE Server (OptaPlanner)
You can very easily get started with these by using Spring Initializr (https://start.spring.io) where you can generate a complete project with all needed to get it running.
Have a look at this quick screencast that shows it in action.
