AppDev in the Cloud - HR Employee Rewards Application on OpenShift

appdev in  the cloud
Over the holiday break I noticed an old favorite BPM example project, maybe one of the first ones I ever created in my BPM career, the JBoss BPM Rewards application was being neglected and no longer deemed worthy of updates.

It has been a part of the learning path for many beginners to the JBoss BPM space, including an integral role in the long running free online BPM workshop that I have shared around the world at Red Hat Summit, JUGs, meetups and JBUG conferences.

With my focus shifting last year to a more Cloud centric application development story I have taken this example project and enabled it for most OpenShift Cloud installation, fully containerizing the example in the easy to use demo format I always provide.

Instead of letting this project deteriorate in the annals of history, I took the project and updated it with the following:

  • Updated to use JBoss BPM Suite 6.4.0
  • Updated to use JBoss EAP 7.0.0
  • Installs locally on your machine
  • Installs containerized
  • Installs to any OpenShift installation
To achieve all this I forked the original project and updated the Cloud based project over on Red Hat Demo Central. To install locally or in a container on your own container platform, you use the forked project I will keep on my own Github:

JBoss BPM Suite Rewards Demo

This is the HR employee rewards demo that provides examples of human task integration, form designer and a custom email work item handler.
There are several options available to you for using this demo; local, containerized or on any OpenShift installation.

The second project can be found on Red Hat Demo Central and hosts the install to any OpenShift installation, but we suggest you use the OpenShift Container Platform Install Demo:

App Dev Cloud with JBoss Rewards Demo

This demo is to install JBoss BPM Suite Rewards Demo in the Cloud based on leveraging the Red Hat Container Development Kit (CDK) and the provided OpenShift Enterprise (OSE) image. It delivers a fully functioning JBoss BPM Mortgage example containerized on OSE.
