Yet Another Workflow Language
YAWL is a BPM/Workflow system, based on a concise and powerful modelling language, that handles complex data transformations, and full integration with organizational resources and external Web Services. YAWL offers:
the most powerful process specification language for capturing control-flow dependencies and resourcing requirements.
native data handling using XML Schema, XPath and XQuery.
a formal foundation that makes its specifications unambiguous and allows automated verification.
a service-oriented architecture that provides an environment that can easily be tuned to specific needs.
As per 2016, YAWL includes an auto-update feature. These auto-updates are not included in the statistics below, which explains why the number of downloads per year has dropped.
