Analysis of the use of a workflow engine for OTRUM system software
MetadataVis full innførsel
Workflow engines are attracting more and more attention. Applications based on workflow engine technology are currently developed and deployed by many companies, such as OTRUM Company. In this project, we focus on the analysis and development of an efficient workflow engine for interactive TV. The research project will realize workflow engine solutions based on three choices including commercial workflow engine, open source workflow engine, and a workflow engine implemented from scratch. In this project, we go through all mentioned solutions. In the literature, many proposed workflow engines are involved for each solution. We picked one example for each choice after several tests. For the commercial workflow engine, we adopted TIBCO BusinessWorks because of its efficiency and simplicity to use. The next step was to look for an open source solution. We suggested the JSPASM package, which is developed under Java environment. The third solution consists of developing a new workflow engine from scratch. Thus, we developed an example under the Eclipse environment to sketch some scenarios used by OTRUM. A comparative study between the proposed solutions has been elaborated. The open source workflow engine is proved to be experimentally beneficent. It could be of interest for OTRUM.
