Hello All,

I want to learn more about JBoss jbpm. I have installed the Eclipse plugin (the visual designer tool), waded through some of the documents and tutorials but still couldn't exactly grasp what this technology is all about. I have read about it being a graph-oriented approach to programming. Is this completely different from the Java OOP style? Also how do you integrate it with Java or use it within for instance a J2EE web application? Any help would be appreciated. Also if you could point me to some helpful links or books about it, that would be helpful too. Thanks in advance.

There's so much to learn in this industry, and not everybody has the necessary interest.

jbpm is a Business Process Execution Language. Knowing BPEL would help you in understanding why and where jbpm is used.
