OpenFlow is an extremely flexible workflow engine, enabling to rapidly develop web based, "workflow-oriented" applications.
OpenFlow is the first workflow engine fully Open Source and its main applications are in the software development and integration of legacy and office automation software.
What is workflow and what makes a "workflow" system different from other systems?
A workflow process is long-running (days or years) and applies programming logic to human activity.
An excellent example of a workflow system is a customer service department. Customers complain, and each complaint becomes a case or process. Certain things must be done in response to each complaint, but other things may be done optionally if the actual facts warrant it. Take a software maintenance department, for instance: for each bug report, front-line people must determine (1) if the bug is already known, (2) if there is already a change in the works, (3) if there is a known workaround, and so on. This may be a requirement for every complaint — but if the front-line personnel don't know an answer, they may need to escalate the report to a tech support person. So in this case, there are certain required tasks, and certain optional tasks which are dependent on the current condition of the process.
Workflow as it applies to content describes the process of breaking down a high-level task into a series of orderly, pre-defined steps that answer these questions:
What needs to be done?
Who needs to do it?
Who needs to approve it?
When must it be completed?
