Hi, what's effektif's state-of-the-art? I saw small activity lately and I was wondering if you think effektif has already reached its development goals or there is more to come.

there’s more to come
@mikrobe in what sense do you mean your question? do you mean 'is there more features to be expected?' or do you mean 'is it stable?'

what don’t don’t want to build is things like a task component. is that what you’re looking for ?

Actually, from a chat we had, you said "you haven't seen yet what effektif is capable of" or something like that.
So I wonder if I should wait for something new before start working with it or I should consider effektif "feature-stable"

short term, we’re integrating the engine into our product
longer term, i m going to try and simplify the different models we have in the engine project
so that the core engine classes are promoted to api
and that the serialization / db stuff is more separated or might even be excluded

Ok, thanks. As far as I understand, short term: no engine development, long term: refactoring and cleanup but no new stuff. Bottom line: I shouldn't expect engine will change a lot for the next months

yep indeed. and you also know that serialization (including the workflow engine interface) and db stuff is the least stable in the long term. as i mentioned, i hope we can eventually turn the WorkflowImpl and ActivityImpl as the main interface classes
