I have a question regarding to the access to Prom 5,  because I might need to do an extensive analysis and not all the plugins are available in Prom 6, is it still possible to access to Prom 5?

    Dear SantiagoH,

    ProM 5 can still be used and downloaded from http://prom.win.tue.nl/tools/prom/ (whereas ProM 6 can be downloaded from http://prom.win.tue.nl/tools/prom6/).

    Development on the ProM 5 framework has been frozen for quite some time now. Development on ProM 5 plug-ins is almost completely frozen.

    We are currently focusing on Prom6. The goal is to port most of the ProM 5 plug-ins to the ProM 6 framework but this takes time and also depends on the plug-in developers.

    If you want to use ProM 5 for you analysis you need to have an MXML event log while ProM 6 prefers an XES event log. If you have an XES event log you can load this in ProM 6 and save it as an MXML event log by using the 'export to disk' function in the object view.

    I hope this answers your question.
    Happy process mining!!!

  • Dear joos

    Thanks for your answer, but what happens if it is necessary to download the sourcecode from Prom5 , is it still possible by SVN?

    Dear Santiago,

    The ProM 5 source is still available. You can download it from http://prom.win.tue.nl/tools/prom/ and choose the third download option ('tar.gz archive', just below the Windows and Macintosh download options).

    It is not recommended however to continue developing in ProM 5.
    Using it for analysis is alright but modifying or adding to the source code is not recommended.
