Extending the BPMN Viewer in Cockpit

BPMN diagrams in Cockpit are rendered and displayed by the bpmn.js toolkit. Bpmn.js
can be extended with additional modules as well as so called moddle extensions.

An additional module refers to the extension of the feature set, whereas a moddle extension makes it possible to add custom
attributes and elements to the BPMN 2.0 model.

Starting with this release, it is possible to use the extension mechanism of bpmn.js through Camunda Cockpit to customize
the default behavior of the BPMN viewer.

To extend the BPMN Viewer, the file app/cockpit/scripts/config.js needs to be adjusted as follows:

var camCockpitConf = {
  ...
  bpmnJs: {
    additionalModules: {
      // a JavaScript file, which represents a module
      myCustomModule: 'my-custom-module/module'
    },
    moddleExtensions: {
      // a JSON file, which represents a moddle extension
      myCustomModdleExtension: 'my-custom-moddle/moddle'
    }
  }
  ...
};

For further information, please see the documentation of Cockpit
and bpmn.js.

Support for Java 9 / 10 & 11

Camunda BPM is now on the cutting-edge of Java since this release brings support for Java 9 & 10 as well as for Java 11
– which has been released just a few days ago.

What’s Next?

The next alpha version is scheduled for the end of October and our team is already working on it.

The minor release of Camunda BPM 7.10 is coming this fall (November 30, 2018).

  • Monitoring Camunda Platform 7 with Prometheus

    Monitoring is an essential facet of running applications in a production system. Through this process, organizations collect and analyze data, and determine if a program is performing as expected within set boundaries. When combined with alerting, monitoring allows for detecting unexpected system behavior to mitigate exceptional situations as fast as possible. Furthermore, tracking the performance of a system enables organizations to improve those aspects that have the biggest impact with higher priority. One essential aspect of monitoring is the list of key metrics you want to observe. There are different categories of statistics that can be of interest here. To observe the defined metrics, there are plenty of application monitoring tools on the market today. They differ in many aspects...
