A Profile for BPMN Interoperability

Blog: Method & Style (Bruce Silver)

The most basic user expectation for any language “standard” is interoperability between tools. BPMN 1.x, however, never provided a standard interchange format.

With each new version of the BPMN spec, Robert Shapiro and, more recently, Denis Gagne, added XPDL support for BPMN elements added or changed. But without a side agreement between tool A and tool B, model interchange between them was essentially impossible.
