Create a BUG Recording System with OBPM in 30 minutes
OBPM is a light Business Process Management system (developed in China, stay in the top
list of SourceForge.net). OBPM is targeting at the end users – business colleagues but not IT
colleagues in an enterprise, to empower them with the capability of building simple application
and workflow by themselves. To the end users, they only need to do configuration, no coding.
Following sample shows how to build a simple Bug management system by using OBPM.
In a software development company, the programmers and the testers are working together,
testers may find some issues, usually we called it bugs, and these bugs need to be logged and be
shared among programmers and the testers.
In this case, we need a web based application, we will call it a module, to input bugs, and we
need to have a list of these bugs. Of course, a menu is also necessary here.
Here we go.
