Things I am annoyed with

I'm playing with BonitaBPMCommunity-7.2.3 for a wile and
I found some very annoying things:
* Very poor and inflexible input validation (input constrains). Just one static error message and no access to business/process variables.
* Expression editor is to small for script editing.
* Bad navigation. To many clicks if you want to edit some scripts especially in connectors.
* It is no way to see the main window or something else behind if expression editor is open. A popup window is not good for it anyway.

  • The scripts, expressions and other stuff are spread across. There is no overview. I'm forced to use external editor for it.
  • No proper project directory, where are all the resources (groovy scripts/functions, business model, organization, diagram, ui-parts and so on) stored in, with possibility to put it under version control.
  • is broken and nobody noticed that (for almost two weeks now). Quality management problems?

  • no search/replace functionality within expression/groovy script editor
  • limited refactoring possibilities (for example changing in business data)
  • after some data changes (type/name changes) you have to do open/close/save for all the groovy scripts which are affected for refreshing of dependencies and compilation
