jBPM Migration Tool project - first small steps

Before (jPDL 3)
As reported earlier, we have been sorting out some of the details on how we want to pursue our jBPM migration tool. We have been pushing forward and wanted to let you all know that we have a first simple version of the migration tool.
After (BPMN2)

It is just one use case and you can see from the 'Before' and 'After' screenshots that we have gone from basic jPDL 3 to BPMN2. There are unit tests in the code base that validate the incoming jPDL 3, transforms them to BPMN2 and then finally validates this output.

There is much yet to do, but the first baby steps have been taken. We will be quickly expanding from here. We will be tagging this version of the code soon and moving on in our roadmap, so stay tuned!
