7.7. Creating a Process Definition

  1. Use a Creation wizard to create an empty process definition. Select FileNewOther. The wizard opens on the Select Wizard page.
  2. Select the JBoss jBPM category, then the jBPM Process Definition item. Clicking on the Next button brings us to the Create Process Definition page.
  3. Type in a name for the process archive file. Click on the Finish button to end the wizard and open the process definition editor.
  4. By viewing the Package Explorer, you can see that creating a process definition involves creating an XML file called [process name].jpdl.xml, which contains the process definition information. A JPG file called [process name].jpg will also be automatically generated when changes are saved to the process.
