Are you looking for a workflow for some specific task? That would be so highly dependent on your circumstances as to make a recommendation impossible without knowing a lot more about what you're trying to do.

Well actually am trying to implement workflow for my client having minimum 5 level of approval process. So workflow engine shd be able to sastain the same.
We have Apache ODE in market which is opensorce but need some clarification on which all application server it will support & would be nice if one could suggest any other Workflow engine with advantages it comes along.

Also, I need to get an idea that to what extend this new workflow will affect existing physical data madel?

Thanks,
Pravin

ODE is a web app that requires Java 5. Tomcat 5 and 6 should run it fine, as should any other servlet container.

Note that ODE is a BPEL engine, so it can support any workflow you can describe using BPEL. By itself, it doesn't require any changes to the underlying data model; but modeling the workflow in BPEL may, if the data model doesn't currently support all requirements.
