Blueprint and BPMN Diagram Portability

Blog: Method & Style (Bruce Silver)

I wrote previously about Lombardi’s efforts to open up Blueprint using XPDL 2.1. A BPMN diagram created in Blueprint can be exported as XPDL and imported into itp commerce Process Modeler for Visio, the tool I use in my BPMessentials training. This is great! Even though it is a standard, BPMN is rarely portable between tools, something that baffles users. But I noticed the lanes did not import properly. My investigation into why has increased my understanding of the portability problem.
