This paper presents WebRatio BPM, an Eclipse-based tool that supports the design and deployment of business processes. The tool applies Model Driven Engineering techniques to complex, multi-actor business processes, mixing tasks executed by humans and by machines. Business processes are described through the standard BPMN 1.2 notation, extended with information on task assignment and escalation policies, activity semantics, and typed data flows, to enable a two-step generative approach: first the Process Model is automatically transformed into a Web Application Model in the WebML notation, which seamlessly express both human- and machine-executable tasks; secondly, the Application Model is fed to an automatic transformation capable of producing the code.
