Hi guys : I have looked at a few workflow technologies and am not sure wether or not one has "broken from the pack" to emerge as an industry standard.

What is the most commonly used java workflow platform ?

In particular, Id like one that supports swing for editting.

any suggestions ?

I'm not sure what exactly you're after, but since you posted in the Web Services forum, it may be BPEL. There are a few links about it in the http://faq.javaranch.com/java/WebServicesFaq.

A fairly lengthy list of non-WS solutions is at http://java-source.net/open-source/workflow-engines

Hi,

i've looked for a java workflow engine as well and tried open source products like OSWorkflow, jBPM, Apache ODE and Bonita. If you're looking for Standards then watch out for terms like BPEL, WS-BPEL, XPDL on oasis-open.org or omg.org or wfmc.org, SOAP / REST and JSRs like Java Business Integration (JSR 208). Many BPEL design tools are availabe now.

Apart from that, these are my requirements:
- flexible workflow framework
- runs on JDK (without application server - apache tomcat would be ok anyway)
- additional webservice support (SOAP and REST)
- active development and community
- xml and jdbc persistence
- spring and hibernate integration
- identity integration available (user, roles, permissions)

Any practical experiences?
