We chose Camunda BPM as a basis for our product “EVA case management”, as it benefits from several significant advantages over other open source projects, e.g. Activiti. From the technical point of view, the seamless integration of Camunda BPM in Java EE-based enterprise scenarios (in our case inside a Glassfish application server) is a major advantage. This integration leads to several unique selling points of Camunda BPM, like the multi tenancy solution we need, Java EE conformant deployment of process applications and an improved management of asynchronous jobs (e.g. timer-driven events). During the implementation and operation of our product, we additionally benefit from the extensive BPM experiences and competences by Camunda.
