Conversion deals with moving a process definition from an old version format to a new version format. jBPM 6 gives us some (pretty much experimental) options when upgrading older process definitions to a new jBPM release format:
Importing from the old proprietary jBPM JPDL 3/4 to BPMN2 with the jBPM web process designer menu function
Ad hoc migration with
jbpmmigration-0.13.jaror a newer release (API mapping is also supported)
The goal of the
jBPM5migrationtoolproject project is to provide some migration tooling to the existing users of jBPM for moving from jBPM5.
The project home and Wiki pages are available here: https://developer.jboss.org/wiki/jBPM5migrationtoolproject. The project is hosted on GitHub: https://github.com/droolsjbpm/jbpmmigration.
