[Mono-dev] Workflow engine for Mono? (and code generation too :-)

Hi people!

I'm working on a open source server, that can be used like a workflow
engine, or like a request/response server. Actually, my implementation is in
.NET. When I could stabilize the features and implementation strategies,
I'll publish the code. I think that it can be easily ported to Mono.

I'm working on a open source metamodel/mode/template code generation engine.
You can check:


Sorry, No documentation yet.... But it based in dynamic models (you can
create any model you want), and a basic-like scripting engine with
templates... Actually, in the examples, using NAnt, it can produce Java,
PHP, JSP, VB.NET, C#, web services, service layer, stored procedures, create
tables for MySql, a simple HelloWorld, or a semi complete ASP.NET
solution.... I'm working on a web interface, to produce an ASP (Application
Service Provider) solution for code generation....

For both project, the difficult part is the implementation of graphical
designers: the people love to draw the workflow or the model (like the new
DSL Toolkit for VS 2005).... Any link on open source designers?
