This framework is used by other divisions of the Ministry to develop Human Resources applications. BonitaSoft Open Solution’s rich API provides tremendous flexibility to the development teams for developing and integrating BPM features in both existing and new applications.

Bonita is made of 3 major components :

  • Bonita Studio: allows the user to graphically modify business processes following the BPMN standard. The user can also connect processes to other pieces of the Information System (such as messaging, ERP, ECM, databases…) in order to generate an autonomous business application accessible as a web form. Bonita Studio also allows the user to design graphically the forms that will be shown to the end user in order to interact with the process. Moreover, the Studio allows the user to get started with processes designed with other standards and technologies such as XPDL or jBPM. It relies on Eclipse.
  • Bonita BPM Engine: The BPM engine is a JAVA API that allows you to interact programmatically with your processes.It is available under LGPL. It relies on Hibernate.
  • Bonita User Experience: is a portal that allows each end-user to manage in a webmail-like interface all the tasks in which he or she is involved. The portal also allow the owner of a process to administrate and get reports about processes. It relies on GWT.
  •  For the localhost, its at http://localhost:9090/bonita/console/login.jsp provided Bonita Studio should be open and process is in run stage(click on run icon).

Bonita Open Solution is Open Source and can be downloaded under GPL.

Prerequirements:

You should have java (version 6 or more) installed on your computer. For this:

$sudo add-apt-repository ppa:flexiondotorg/java
$sudo apt-get update
$sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk sun-java6-plugin

You may see few key warning. Just ignore those, it’s the PPA’s small issue. but the jdk will work great.

Now set the path of java as:

$vi ~/.bashrc

Add the following lines in it.

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.30/bin/java
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.30/bin

Note: If you installed JRE JAVA then change variable in above file from JAVA_HOME to JRE_HOME

You can check whether the path has been set or not using commands:

echo $JAVA_HOME
echo $PATH
