Ready to Use Components
Nouveau Alliance Workflow Automation Service features a library of pre -defined workflow nodes and activities that you can extend using Java or over a dozen scripting languages including VBScript on Microsoft Windows and AppleScript on Mac OS X.
Nouveau Alliance Workflow Automation Service simplifies deployment. You can transparently add a workspace anywhere in the peer network, and move a workspace from one server to another to distribute processing load. Remote workflow processes automatically "discover" the workspace and its workflows with no additional programming or administrative overhead.
Ease of Integration
Nouveau Alliance Workflow Automation Service is easy to integrate with existing applications and software infrastructure. It can be run as a stand-alone server, or it can be embedded in an existing Java application, in a servlet engine as an application context, or in an EJB server as a container or session object.
Remote Debugging and Monitoring
Nouveau Alliance Workflow Automation Service's dynamic process management enables you to debug and monitor workflows as they are running. Stepping over nodes and activities, stepping into subworkflows, and examining values during execution are all simple to do. You can also open, debug, and modify remotely running workflows, enabling you to quickly find and fix problems during and after deployment
Nouveau Alliance Workflow Automation Service utilizes the security services of the Nouveau Alliance Collaboration Server. User authentication uses JSSE and standard directory services such as LDAP, NIS, and Microsoft Active Directory. Workspaces and their workflows can be fully encrypted using strong security through JCE/JSA algorithms, and support secure communications using SSL/TLS/HTTPS technologies. You can select the level and type of security that are right for your application.
