Hi, yes of course this will be a part. But as I wrote earlier I see it the following way: 1. You have to recognize a situation/context where a specific workflow needs to be started. 2. You have to have a component that will ensure this workflow will be processed. For the point 1 I would like to use a rule-engine approach. The rule-engine will fire an event if a specific situation is recognized. Than the workflow engine will take over. This component now knows how to do it, whereas the rule-engine knows what to do when.

Ok, lot of questions: 1. I don't know how good it scales. 2. For now I would like to keep the central storage pattern currently used. 3. Yes, these files can be synced via IOS. That's my next step I want to try. I would like to be able to work on such a graph in a group.

I don't know. But linking a lot of graphs should easly be possible. At the moment we only have relations between objects, but we can have relations between relations as well ;-))

We will see... IMO yes: P2P for distribution, the rest I don't know.

;-) Yes, of course. It's just a concept check to see if the idea can be implemented with other approaches as well. And I can tell you: Yes, it's possible :-)) I just checked it yesterday. A lot of work to do, but the basic concept works. Robert
