Last week week we presented at the at London DevOpsour experience with Jenkins Xto automate, release and manage 40+ repositories, which includes Java Libraries, Docker Images, HELM charts and deployments to environments which execute Acceptance tests against them. We are working quite hard to refine how the Activiti Cloud APIs from different components are consumed and also we are working hard to enable new BPMN elements. We will double down our efforts to provide a framework for testing these services in a distributed environment to make sure that we have enough coverage from each BPMN element when running in a distributed approach.

 

@miguelruizdevworked on the reusability of modelling acceptance test steps.

Last week we released Activiti Cloud SR1 containing some major compatibility improvements. At the same time we triaged the issues for our 7.1.0.M1 Milestone that you can follow here: (https://github.com/activiti/activiti/issues?q=is%3Aopen+is%3Aissue+milestone%3A7.1.0.M1)

 

There are still issues being triaged, and the date has been set to April 10, 2019. We will prioritize adding support for more BPMN elements and polishing the modelling services.

Activiti Cloud SR1 Released!

Posted by salaboy Employee Mar 8, 2019

I am happy to announce the first Service Release for Activiti Cloud and Activiti Core artefacts. After getting a lot of community feedback from our first GA iteration we are now releasing 7.0.0.SR1improving mostly on compatibility with Spring Boot 2.0.x and JDK 8 support in addition to JDK11.

You can consume all the Activiti Cloud artifacts from Maven Central:

<dependencyManagement>   
  <dependencies>    
    <dependency>         
      <groupId>org.activiti.cloud.dependencies</groupId>      
      <artifactId>activiti-cloud-dependencies</artifactId>      
      <version>7.0.0.SR1</version>
     
      <scope>import</scope>      
      <type>pom</type>    
    </dependency>  
  </dependencies>
</dependencyManagement>


In this SR1 release you will find the following [main fixes]:

  • Task Variable Endpoints for Admin and Users update
  • JDK 8 support for our artifacts
  • Process Definition XML accessible in Query Service
  • Sync between query and runtime bundle for standalone tasks
  • Swagger file generation from RB endpoints fix

All these Spring Boot Starters are based on Spring Boot 2.1.2 and Spring Cloud Greenwich RELEASE and all the artifacts are compiled to work with JDK11 (and now JDK8 support as well).

You can also deploy our Example HELM charts in your favourite cloud providers or On-Premise Kubernetes installation by following our [Getting Started Guide]

HELM Charts for Full Example has being updated to consume GA artifacts in **version 1.1.9**

If you are interested in the future of the project you can take a look at our [presentation at DevCon]

Last week we worked on stabilizing our 7.0.x and 7.1.x release trains while we updated the docs and prepare the final details of our SR1 release which includes some fixes but major compatibility improvements allowing easier integrations with other frameworks and other versions of JDK and Spring Boot.

 

@CTI777Worked on issues  #2272 (signal events) and #2515 (task variables)

 

@igdianovworked on updating Quickstarts, PoC Helm unit tests, Activiti Helm Charts improvements, Runtime Bundle events aggregation execution context issue, and Jenkins-X updatebot multi-branch single PR issue
