Kogito Tooling 0.8.3 Released!


We have just launched a fresh new Kogito Tooling release! 🎉

On the 0.8.3 release, we made a lot of improvements and bug fixes. This post will give a quick overview of this release, and also add some highlights of our 0.8.2 and 0.8.1 releases. I hope you enjoy it!

BPMN and DMN Standalone Editors

Since 0.7.2.alpha3 we started shipping a new component of the KIE tooling, our standalone BPMN and DMN Editors. On the 0.8.1 release, we delivered the first official version of this cool library. 🎉

These Standalone Editors provide a straightforward way to use our tried-and-true DMN and BPMN Editors embedded in your web applications.

The editors are now distributed in a self-contained library that provides an all-in-one JavaScript file for each of them that can be interacted with using a comprehensive API for setup and control it.

Now it's super easy to embed our editors in your applications, see this gist example:


Embed your BPMN and DMN models

In the 0.8.2 release, we have introduced a new feature that will enable you easily embed your BPMN and DMN models on any web application with an iframe. We have updated our toolbar on the Business Modeler Preview, and now under the “Share” menu, there is an “Embed” option.


See the full blog post for an in-depth look into this feature.

DMN editor now opens 1.1 and 1.3 assets

The DMN editor continues evolving towards making users’ lives as simple as possible. On Kogito 0.8.1, we introduce a new mechanism to open DMN 1.1 and 1.3 assets.
