It’s rentrée in France – that is, back-to-school for the students, back from holidays and summer vacations for the rest of us.
Seems that the community has not taken much of a holiday, though, as there has been activity ongoing all summer. If you’ve been gone, here’s a quick update.
There’s a new connector to work with the Pushover service (pushover.net), to create notifications for mobile phones, thanks to community member roelveldhuizen.
And another to add a list of users to a BOS directory, with associated membership, thanks to community member ascharao.
And thanks also to community contributor Brian Mullan, who posted a question to the Forum some time ago, and has returned to share his experience with installing BOS inside LXC containers. Check out his detailed tutorial here.

Hey! We’re Hiring!
No need to check Monster.com. Look at what’s open here at BonitaSoft! (Pssst – pass it on. Maybe you’ve got a friend who should know about this…)
Hey! We’re Talking!
Come meet us, and fellow BonitaSoft community members, at the JUG Summer Camp on 14 September. Bonita Community Manager Frédéric Bouquet and community contributor Sébastien Prunier will be presenting a talk about how to integrate the BOS execution engine in a business web application.
And we have Eclipse Day Delft and EclipseCon Europe coming up. Check that out here in our blog post about BonitaSoft and Eclipse.
We’re looking forward to a busy and productive fall. Hope you are too.
Mihai Coucy, one of our BonitaSoft Services consultants, originally comes from Romania.
He is in back in Bucarest (Romania) teaching Business Process Application Development and Advanced Integration training courses to a (Romanian) company…in Romanian.
The BonitaSoft team can’t do everything (alas, the training materials were not in Romanian), but what we can do is sometimes quite surprising!
*And after hours, we heard he’ll be searching for the best mititei. (Perhaps we can get him to share a recipe.)
Our cool Bonita Community has been active, as always. Here’s an update on some recent activity:
There are some new connector contributions to play with, thanks to community member pigbar.
A connector to create a QRC (Quick Response Code) image from text
(Note that we didn’t use this cool connector to generate the image below – our super-intern Laurent used a packet of post-its.)
(Thanks also to Julien Mege!)
Thanks to community member vneri for this tip on how to use your own personalized confirmation page in an entry pageflow.
scm1970 and vikas.s.paney are looking for some advice and feedback from other BOS users. Share your experience with Siebel integration and how many processes a BOS installation can handle.
And hey, we just passed the 2000 followers mark on Twitter– are you following @bonitasoft? (Tweet it out and let us know you’re there!)
There’s a new tutorial example available in the online BonitaSoft documentation system for Drools users. This tutorial can be used with both BOS 5.6 and BOS 5.7 versions.
Using Drools Guvnor, create a simple test Guvnor package, model, and rule to check if a person is more than 18 years old, and then execute 4 different Drools connectors:
- Execute an operation in a Drools server connector
- Execute an Insert a list of objects connector
- Execute a StatelessKnowledgeSession connector
- Execute a Get objects connector
You’ll find this “related tutorial” attached to the entries for each of the above Drools connectors.
Did you know we’re on LinkedIn? Been by to visit us there yet?
Right now we’ve got a poll up – “What’s the biggest driver for BPM?”
If you have an opinion to share on BPM – come share it. (If you don’t see your point of view represented in the choices presented, you can elaborate in a comment.)
This poll closes on June 28, so click on over and respond now.
BonitaSoft is still growing – and we’re looking for a Java geek with a passion for explaining stuff.
That is, we want a mouton a cinq pattes who writes clearly and concisely in English, can interface with the Grenoble team in French, and really likes to write installation guides, development guides, javadocs, and technical tutorials.
And to do that they’ll need to tinker with the Bonita engine, know their way around an API, and then document it neatly for our technical user community.
If you know a guy or gal like this, send them to us!
