Module flowable-json-converter and flowable-ui-modeler-frontend missing in 7.0.0.M1

We are trying to upgrade our code from 6.8.0 to 7.0.0.M1 but the Maven dependencies flowable-json-converter and flowable-ui-modeler-frontend seem to be missing with new version.

Are they replaced / superseeded by a different component? Is there any upgrade guide?

Thanks in advance.


Like mentioned in the release notes we have done a first 7 version milestone release focusing on the engines and the Spring Boot and Java 17 upgrade. Therefore you are missing the modules you mention. For now we recommend to stay on the 6.x version if you are using the UI apps, and we will keep the 6.x versions in development for the next year as well.

Best regards

Thank you for your answer @tijs

Does this mean that the two modules mentioned above will eventually be part of final 7.0.0?

Or that 7.0.0 will not contain them anyway?

That was a fast response :slight_smile:
This is a decision that has not been made yet, this is something for 2023.
When there is more information we will communicate this on this forum.

Best regards

Thank you again, and happy new year :slight_smile:

Hello @tijs is there any official position about it now? Thank you in advance for any update you want to share here!
Best regards

Hi Roberto,

We are working on a new 7.0.0 milestone that will keep focusing on the engines like in milestone 1. In the meantime we have released a Design application in the cloud for which you can signup for free and use that as a modeling environment (Model in the cloud | Flowable Design | Free). The open source UI applications of version 6 are using an outdated Angular 1 version, with lots of security issues etc. So that’s not something that we can continue in this way.

Best regards


The current version of flowable that is being used is 6.8.0 where flowable-ui is used to design the processes this is not available as mentioned in the release notes it is not supported in the 7.0.0 - please can you advise what can be done to continue using the process definition other than the cloud version - is it possible for the flowable-ui 6.8.0 to work with the 7.0.0 engine? is this something that is recommended to be done?


The Modeler produces BPMN XML, and the Flowable engne will always be able to read and execute that.
Do note that it’s best to run the modeler in a separate db schema to avoid any conflicts.


Is this 7.0 Cloud solution the final solutions or can we expect in near future a flowable-ui.war solution as available at versie 6.8.1? What is the roadmap for this?

Best regards,

Hey @mikewes,

Have a look at Fflowable 6 future - #2 by filiphr for more information.
