Number of used Process Engines

Hello everyone,

i am having a question about the number of process engines that are used.

If for example I create two different Java-Projects. In each project I have a class that extends ServletProcessApplication, an empty processes.xml file, several .bpmn files and JavaDelegate classes. If I deploy these two projects in the webapps folder of my Tomcat-Server, does this lead to the state, that I am actually using two engines on my Tomcat?

I hope you can clarify my understanding of this topic.


Hi @MichiDahm,

if you use the Camunda Tomcat distribution then the process engine is shared between all process applications. See the docs for details.

Best regards,
