JBoss BRMS demos - now available for installation on Windows

This last week I have been busy, with some help from my friends, to update the existing JBoss Business Rules Management System (BRMS) demos with some interesting fixes. Think of this a giving the demos a fresh coat of paint to make them new and shiny again.

It came about as I was preparing for a couple of webinars we have running this week. I wanted to fix a few inconsistencies and leverage a few new features that are coming down the road for our customers. I also had contacted a friend in the USA who was willing to sort out the Windows installation script, a much requested feature when I am on the road showing off with these demos.

The demos that have been patched and released are listed here to provide a starting point for you:



The first was to pull in a new web process designer version that contains bug fixes that will very shortly be made available to the customer base in a patch roll-out. The fix I was looking for has been pushed to these versions:

The most exciting fix was to enable Windows users to be able to install these demos in a fully automated fashion like the Unix based users do with an init script. On my last trip I bumped into a colleague who offered to provide these scripts. Pass your thanks to Andrew Block for his great work to enable Windows users on these demos and it was released in these versions:

Finally, don't forget to enjoy the webinars that were run highlighting these demos.

Enjoy! ;)
