New jBPM5 web designer version available

A new jBPM5 web designer version is available for download now on sourceforge. It includes over 20 bug fixes from the previous version.

If you are using the jBPM installer, follow these steps to upgrade to this new version:

1) Edit $jbpm-installer-dir$/ and make sure you have:

# the version of the Designer you want to use
# and the associated URL you want to get it from

2) In $jbpm-installer-dir$ execute the following commands:
ant clean.demo
ant install.demo
ant start.demo

Enjoy :)


  1. Hi,

    alternativ you can replace the designer.war manually. You have to download and rename the designer-, and then replace the existing designer.war with the new one. The designer is placed in /jbossServerFolder/server/default/deploy.
    (The ant script does the same, ;-). And so no config-files will be replaced.)

  2. Rather than aimlessly playing with the functionality of Guvnor, I tried to follow the following tutorial on the jBPM5 Web Designer: .

    There are some inconsistencies between the video and this download. At time 2:35, the video references the addition of a footer toolbar in the BPMN2 process editor that does not seem to exist in this download. I’m not sure if this is due to a difference between the install and the developers deployment, or just a browser rendering problem.

    Also, at time 4:35, the video references the “Connect to jBPM service repository” button in the header toolbar that does not appear.

    Am I missing some configuration to get these missing items to appear? Or, is there a place to get the nightly designer code?

  4. The codes worked just fine. Inclusion of over 20 bug fixes from the previous version is really effective.

  5. I am not using jBPM installer, will this code still work? I was was also able to notice some inconsistencies between the video and this download. But I guess it's just a browser problem.

  6. I've been using jBPM5 web designer in making some of my Calgary web design projects compelling and attractive. I can say that this is indeed a must tool for every web designer.

  7. I am trying to install jbpm in my system(windows 7,64-bit processor) and refered the link file:///D:/JBPM/jbpm-installer/install.html for the entire process. So far everything has gone well until the "ant install.demo" step, but when i run the command "ant start.demo", it says build failed and jboss as7 did not start within 5 minutes. Please help me to get rid of this problem at the earliest as there is a bit of urgency for me to start working on jbpm.Awaiting your reply with all possible solutions.

  8. I like what you guys are up too. Such smart work and reporting! Carry on the excellent works guys I’ve incorporated you guys to my blogroll. I think it will improve the value of my site.
