i'm currenty evaluating jBPM for my company (40 000 people).

jBPM overview tells us :

"One piece of research is especially valuable - Workflow Patterns. Prof. Wil van der Aalst has created a catalogue of workflow patterns analogue with the design patterns by the 'Gang of Four'. These patterns are a organised set of concepts that are distilled from the study of a wide range of commercial workflow products. JBoss jBPM's internal model is created with these workflow patterns in mind. "

That's fine !!!
But which patterns are supported ???

Here is my checklist :

Control flow pattern :

Parralel Split
Exclusive choice
Simple Merge
Multi Choice
Synchronizing Merge
N-out-of-M Join
Arbitrary cycles
Implicit Termination
Multiple instances without synchronization
Multiple instances with a Priori Design Time knowledge
Multiple instances with a Priori Run Time knowledge
Multiple instances without a Priori Run Time knowledge
Deferred Choice
Interleaved Parallel Routing
Cancel Activity
Cancel Case

Resouce creation pattern :

Direct Allocation
Role-Based Allocation
Deferred Allocation
Separation of Duties
Case Handling
Retain familiar
Capablity-Based Allocation
History-Based Allocation
Organisational Allocation
Automatic Execution

Visibility patterns :

Configurable Unallocated Work Item Visibility
Configurable Allocated Work Item Visibility

It would be fine if jBPM Overview displays a matrix with patterns and jBPM compliance. (Bonita does ...)

Thanks a lot !
