Workflow In RubyOnRails

When any enterprise development on ROR is evaluated , one of the
important point of evaluation is support or availability of proper
workflow engine meeting XPDL/WF-XML as per WFMC Standards

Please refer http://www.wfmc.org/

In java there are many open source workflow engines which you can
integrate with your application bur Rails has none of equivalent
standard

There is some work in this direction like
http://lunchroom.lunchboxsoftware.com/articles/2006/01/21/acts-as-state-machine
but it is far away from enterprise requirements and really is not build
on WFMC Standards

Actually Rails is so well suited for such Workflow based enterprise
development or following the workflow patterns
(http://is.tm.tue.nl/research/patterns/) due its MVC architecture

Some Workflow engines available in Java can be used like

http://web.openwfe.org/display/openwfe/Home

Has ruby connector but core rails workflow engine will be always
preferable or integration in rails will be preferable

I request that the workflow engine should be incorporated in core RAILS
and could be something like Bonita of ObjectWeb
(http://bonita.objectweb.org/)
