Is Grails Activiti Plugin production ready? Here is how people use it in production.

I posted this question "How do you use Grails Activiti Plugin?" last month to the plugin's discussion forum to find out how people use the plugin. I am glad and appreciated kindness of plugin users to share their experiences.

The following are some production usages of the Grails Activiti Plugin:

"We're re-writing a home-grown workflow management system to an order and production management system with Activiti as the BPM side. Its not in production yet but will be in use in 2012Q1." by Ned Wolpert

"I'm about to start a new business within an existing company. The new business is around BPM consulting and the supporting IT systems, with a strong focus on logistics processes. After checking several options I've chosen the combination of Grails/Activiti/ExtJs 4 to develop thew new system. I've developed a prototype for our new system and I must say that this combination works just wonderful!" by Markus Menner

"I'm using the grails activiti plugin in an application for call-center employees. The idea is support these employees with data from everywhere out of the organization. I use the activiti engine to support call-back appointments: if the call-center employee isn't able to give an answer to the customer, he creates an appointment for a colleague." by Richard Polderman

"I'm using it to control process performance in geoprocessing internal services. It's a process automation of services like topographic mapping. We are not creating automatic maps or anything like that. It's a simple tool we are using to measure business performance. We'll be using it to track performance and promote people based on results they give. In a near future we could use it in a six sigma project." by Alberto Barcelos

Lastly, I'd love to hear your sharing on how you use the plugin in the comments section below and you can find out more about how others use the plugin in this thread.

Hi Chee Kin,

I am using the DDC plugin for Grails and just wondering if there are plans to release a new version of it. What will be the enhancements/bug fix included and would it be production ready?

Thank you.

Hi Kai,

Thanks for writing.

DDC plugin? Do you mean Dynamic Domain Class?

It is not longer actively develop and support. Please use other GORM NoSQL plugin such as Redis, MongoDB plugin which officially supported by SpringSource.
