With the upcomming version 5.0.0 the Imixs-Workflow engine is integrated into the Eclipse Micoroprofile API.
The Enterprise Java technology has evolved with the industry for nearly two decades to support distributed application architectures based on RMI/IIOP, Web Services, and REST. The MicroProfile is the next step in that evolution. Since Imixs based on Java Enterprise technology stack, it is consistently to expand the technology to the new standard. As a developer this will bring you more features and a much smarter way to run the Imixs-Worklfow engine within a microservice architecture.
The Version 5.0.0 will provide the following APIs:
- Metrics – This allows you to monitor Imixs-Workflow with Tools like Prometheus or Grafana
- Health Check – The Health Check API can be used to probe the state of an Imixs-Worklfow instance from another machine (i.e. a kubernetes service controller)
- Config API – Configuration data can now come from different locations
We will provide soon more documentation and examples on how you can run Imixs-Workflow in a Microservice Infrastructure. If you have questions please joint our community!
