jBPM Community


There is an aggregated feed where jBPM developers post blogs about new features, important announcements, and other crazy ideas they might have ;)


Chat (IRC)

Please feel free to join us in our IRC channel at chat.freenode.net (port 6667) #jbpm.  This is where most of the real-time discussion about the project takes place and where you can find most of the developers most of their time as well.  Don't have an IRC client installed? Simply go to http://webchat.freenode.net, input your desired nickname, and specify #jbpm. Then click login to join the fun.


  • Don't ask if you can ask, just ask your question.
  • Don't paste code to the channel, unless its a single line, use a nopaste service such as pastebin and paste the link you get after pasting your code.
  • Don't private message people, always ask your questions in the public channel.
  • If you use the online irc web gateway make sure you change your nick from the "dork" default, as requested in the login page.
