Subject RE: Pageflow for Struts
Date Sun, 03 Aug 2003 19:06:39 GMT
There are a number of good open-source workflow projects. Werkflow from
Werken, Commons-workflow from Jakarta, OSWorkflow from Open Symphony are a
few. Commercially there are TONS, BEA Integration, Tibco Active Enterprise,
WebMethods, IBM DragonFly, Drala, etc.
Id like to include connectors to at least a few of these inside of pageflow.

Have you (or anyone on the list) looked at Bob McWhirter's 
"werkflow"? http://werkflow.codehaus.org/

I've been meaning to look at it more closely to see if it qualifies 
as some or part of the "open-source business application controller 
frameworks" you mention.
