The Oryx project of the business process technology chair at Hasso-Plattner-Institute is developing a browser based editor for business processes in different notations. As we know the chair quite well, we visited them today for exchanging our experiences in development.
If you compare our preview version with their editor you will see that we both use the ExtJS framework and we both use SVG for displaying our data. However, from an architectural point of view, we differ from each other. While our server back-end provides several advantages, it is the Oryx front-end architecture that stands out in comparison to ours.
Although it might be difficult to really share a common source code basis in both projects, sharing the architectural aspects is definitively interesting for both of us. Let’s see how we can benefit even more from each other. Thank you guys for this afternoon.
