I said all i can about play’s plugin system in the previous post, it is great. But since it was about initializing activiti i didn’t say anything about it.

They say a BPM engine should be working in every Java environment, and this ‘helloworld’ is one example. API is clean, well documented and easy to work with.

Overall experience with activiti is simply great.*That* is the fuel that keeps us open source developers going! Thanks, Mr Sleepcoder!
