What is YouBPM license?

Core YouBPM is available under a commercial or open-source license. YouBPM source code repository is hosted on GitHub , and the platform is available as a Maven package.

To use enterprise features of YouBPM to build applications or services that will only be used internally by organizations, customers need to buy End-User license.

If customer is intending to create a commercial product with YouBPM and licensed to any third parties, they will need OEM license.

Can YouBPM communicate with existing applications?

Yes, the architecture allows to easily extends functionality with pluggable Spring components that send commands via Distributed Command Bus and/or subscribe to Event Bus to implement integration with existing components.

Can I add custom UI functionality using YouBPM?

Yes, it is very easy to use existing templates and samples to implement additional functionality. Sencha ExtJS allows to build UI using rich widgets that work very well together to provide robust user experience without reloading browser page.

What browsers does YouBPM support?

Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera. Some advanced functionality like Web RTC is only natively supported by Chrome and Firefox.
