This paper describes WOLF (WOrkflow LiFe cycle management environment), an open-source development environment that leverages the full power of Eclipse to provide users with an industrial-strength business process modelling tool that has already proven its functionality in real-world projects. WOLF provides users with a graphical view of the advanced abstractions related to agent-based BPM (Business Process Management) like agents, workflows, events and messages. The core advantage of such abstractions is their high-level expressiveness that turns agent-based BPM into a solid technology that can be easily understood and mastered by both technical personnel and domain experts. The main feature of WOLF is the support for the graphical definition of workflows by means of a dedicated Eclipse editor; besides that, WOLF also helps developers in setting up Eclipse projects for realizing and managing agent-based business processes.

Abstract

This paper describes WOLF (WOrkflow LiFe cycle management environment), an open-source development environment that leverages the full power of Eclipse to provide users with an industrial-strength business process modelling tool that has already proven its functionality in real-world projects. WOLF provides users with a graphical view of the advanced abstractions related to agent-based BPM (Business Process Management) like agents, workflows, events and messages. The core advantage of such abstractions is their high-level expressiveness that turns agent-based BPM into a solid technology that can be easily understood and mastered by both technical personnel and domain experts. The main feature of WOLF is the support for the graphical definition of workflows by means of a dedicated Eclipse editor; besides that, WOLF also helps developers in setting up Eclipse projects for realizing and managing agent-based business processes.
