Eclipse Based Business Process Modeling Tool Released


Embarcadero Technologies has released EA/Studio Community Edition, a freely available business process modeling (BPM) database tool built on the Eclipse framework.

EA/Studio Community Edition lets business process modelers and database architects engage in enterprise architecture modeling, including documenting business processes for regulatory compliance purposes. EA/Studio Community Edition supports XML and the business process modeling notation (BPMN), includes standard process modeling elements, and offers the ability to easily import Visio diagrams. Conceptual, process and data models can be shared between EA/Studio and ER/Studio, Embarcadero's flagship data modeling tool.

When additional functionality is required, users can upgrade to the commercial version of EA/Studio, which includes conceptual modeling, impact analysis and usage reporting. Users of both EA/Studio Community Edition and the commercial version of EA/Studio can seamlessly collaborate and share files between the two versions.

"Embarcadero's release of EA/Studio Community Edition expresses the company's continued endorsement of Eclipse-based software," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director, Eclipse Foundation. "We're pleased to see Embarcadero bring its expertise in commercial database tools to the Eclipse community. This new offering underscores the increased productivity and flexibility that can be achieved by leveraging the Eclipse platform with first-class software like Embarcadero's database tools."
