Digital Vista's workflow engine, Ariadne,
is a simple but powerful, broadly compatible, J2EE-based,
XML-driven workflow engine for building web-enabled workflow
applications. Ariadne is compatible with the popular J2EE
application servers including: BEA WebLogic®, IBM
WebSphere®, Oracle 9iAS®, Orion Server® and
Ariadne differs from competing products
- Highly configurable: Most aspects of Ariadne are
configurable and easily customisable. It is simple to
extend it, for example by adding custom handlers for
certain tasks that talk to proprietary or legacy systems.
- Embeddable: This engine can be used to manage most
state-driven applications through it's lightweight and
embeddable design. This is one of the greatest features
of Ariadne that truly sets it apart from other workflow
management solutions. This does not mean that Ariadne
is not useful in developing mission-critical applications-
our scalable design will support simple workflow type
operations through to distributed, enterprise-wide applications.
- Low cost: Ariadne is licensed on a per server basis
(not per user or per processor).
- Source code: Full source code is available
