BPMN 2.0 Wimmelbild 

The BPMN 2.0 specification has been submitted to the OMG almost a month ago (read more). The most obvious news is of course the support for modeling explicit conversations and choreographies. But also the traditional "internal process" view has been enhanced a lot with Event Sub Processes, Non-interrupting Events, Data Stores, Data Objects representing Collections, or the Star-Trek-inspired Escalation Event, to name just a few.

To give you some impressions on what the current BPMN 2.0 draft provides, I created a so called BPMN 2.0 Wimmelbild. A Wimmelbild is a German word for an illustrated page showing a scene with many, many different details, typically for children. An example is a crowded city crossing, a park, etc. The page is full of details, with many peoples and things are "wimmeling" around.

All I did, was transfering this concept to BPMN 2.0 - enjoy the result!

All models are in the context of an auctioning platform. From top-left to bottom-right: High level conversation view, a part of the choreography, and the refined process view.

07/30/2009: I updated the Wimmelbild to fix some errors and add more elements.
