Oak Groves BPM Engine Works in .Net, Java Worlds
Reactor 6.0, the business process management engine in beta now, uses a Web services interface to provide interoperability.Oak Grove Systems, which makes business process management software, on Tuesday will announce the next iteration of its process engine that spans both Microsoft .Net and Java development environments. In beta now, Reactor 6.0 provides interoperability between both .Net and Java environments through a Web services interface, officials said. The engine is used to automate and execute business processes and is implemented in Java with EJB (Enterprise JavaBeans), XML and SOAP (simple object access protocol) APIs for better flexibility with existing infrastructures, said officials at Oak Grove Systems Inc., in Calabasas, Calif. The Reactor upgrade includes a pair of new, namesake tools: Process Studio, a tool for defining human activity flows and automated tasks; and Process Manager, a new user interface tool that lets users access work lists and track and monitor system activity.
