Build number: 1.0.0.v20130612-0327
Stardust provides a comprehensive Business Process Management Suite (BPMS), which covers all phases of the Business Process Lifecycle including modeling, simulation, execution, monitoring and reporting.
Stardust allows you to model business processes in Eclipse or a Browser-based modeler, integrate them with your application services and UI components, run them in the Process Engine and access workflow functionality and document management capabilities in the Browser Portal.
The Business Process Modeler provides the following functionality directly in the Stardust Browser portal:
No development work is required for simple, especially document processing-centric scenarios.
The Process Workbench, an integrated process modeling and development environment provides functionality like
The modeler (as well as the runtime environment) can be extended via numerous Eclipse Extension Points.
Stardust provides a comprehensive end user portal supporting Web-based portals with support for modern Web technologies with three perspectives
The contribution furthermore comprises a Runtime Environment that:
The Process Runtime Environment is designed with a modular architecture, heavily using various Java Interface based extension points.
The typical Stardust installation requires:
Note that these are the minimum requirements to successfully install and run Stardust on a personal computer. In practice, too much depends on the number of concurrent users and the network load. Linux, for example, is very efficient in terms of managing resources, and can support more number of connections for fewer resources.
Please note that Eclipse does not include the Java runtime environment (JRE). You need JRE (version 6 or later) or latest Java development kit (JDK) installed on your PC to run Eclipse, as in the above list.
The application server and the back-end database may require additional resources. Please consult the relevant documentation for additional information.
Also note that Stardust itself requires slightly more than 1 GB of disk space after installation. The 2 GB requirement mentioned above includes the disk space required by the installed Stardust components.
The following tables list all supported micro versions for:
We do not expect any problems in all micro versions covered in the following tables of supported platforms, but we cannot strictly guarantee correct end-to-end system functionality in other platform versions than the Reference Test Platforms, as bugs in the platform code and problems introduced by combining different unforeseen micro-level versions of the different platform components could in rare cases introduce incorrect system behavior that is beyond our control. Refer to section Reference Test Platforms for a list of fine grained version information for our regression test platforms.
Currently the following Eclipse platforms are supported:
