Workflow has always been an important part of AEM Forms.

Previously, the best workflow tools and capabilities were on the AEM Forms on JEE platform. This platform features the Workbench tool and many out-of-the-box AEM Forms workflow steps. You can create services by assembling these steps to match your business workflow. You can even create custom workflow steps in Java.
