In the first part of this post we show how to start an Activiti process from Mule ESB using the new Mule’s activiti module.

We are pleased to announce Mule 3 Activiti support. We’re very happy to be working with the Activiti team and see a lot of value for our community using Mule and Activiti together.

For REST, we think in resources and data.
