We are looking to implement some sort of business process management behind SS REST services. We need to be able to manage changes in workflows as well as state of specific workflow instances. 

Anyone doing anything similar, what frameworks / tools are you using.

Fredrick Lackey:

Most engines / frameworks for this type of thing are either bloated, inadequate, ridiculously expensive, or some combination thereof.  Generally speaking, a simple BRM hierarchy works best for most environments.  Of the countless 3rd party products I’ve used for this, the only one that I actually enjoyed using was InRule.

Ephraim Moss:

Will check inRule out. Anything open source that has caught anyone’s eye. Want to avoid the heavy bloat. WF is not really a consideration, would be nice to hear an argument otherwise.
