When working on large projects, I always look to the relational data model as the "end point" i.e., the place which gives immediate relevance, structure, and scalability to any software component in a system. But it seems like these WSDL BPM XPDL types only reference databases as secondary services in their frameworks, making it difficult to understand what it is that is being solved by their frameworks.
I really want to learn how to automate workflows using something like JBPM but havent been able to understand what it is that JBpm does which good old object oriented code doesnt also do.
Will somebody please give us a real world example of how xpdl/Jbpm/etc speeds deployment, development, etc. ?
