Generating a Zeebe-Python Client Stub in Less Than An Hour: A gRPC + Zeebe Tutorial

Written by Mike Winters and Sebastian Menski on in the Inside Zeebe category.
The high points: Starting in Zeebe 0.12, Zeebe clients communicate with brokers via a stateless gRPC gateway, with Protocol Buffers used as the interface design language and message interchange format. gRPC makes it easy to generate a “client stub” in any of ten supported programming languages; this means it’s possible to use Zeebe in applications written in not only Java and Go–the languages with officially-supported Zeebe clients–but also Python, Ruby, C#, PHP, and more.

Written by Mike Winters on in the Inside Zeebe category.
Zeebe 0.12 supports message events, making it easy to use Zeebe as part of an event-driven architecture; workflow instances can to respond to events published by external systems. And Zeebe handles all of the heavy lifting related to correlating a message to a workflow instance: buffering incoming messages, opening a subscription to receive messages that match with active workflow instances, and correlating a message (when one exists) to a workflow instance that has arrived at a message event.

Announcing the Zeebe 0.12 Release: Message Correlation, Parallel Processing, and More

Written by Mike Winters on in the Releases category.

The Zeebe team is excited to announce the 0.12 release. To get started with Zeebe 0.12, please see our installation guide.

It’s been 3 months since the Zeebe 0.11 release, and we’ve been hard at work adding new BPMN symbols that will enable Zeebe to support a range of new use cases.

The 0.12 release also includes a number of architectural changes to Zeebe that make it a much simpler system that’s more focused on its core use case: high-throughput, low-latency workflow automation.
