Before downloading Camunda, make sure you have a JRE (Java Runtime Environment), or better, a JDK (Java Development Kit) installed. Please check the supported Java versions.

Download JDK

Download the Runtime

Camunda is a flexible framework which can be used in different contexts. See Architecture Overview for more details. Based on how you want to use Camunda, you can choose a different distribution.

Community vs. Enterprise Edition

Camunda provides separate runtime downloads for community users and enterprise subscription customers:

It is also possible to run Camunda with Spring Boot and Docker.

Full Distribution

Download the full distribution if you want to use a shared process engine or if you want to get to know Camunda quickly, without any additional setup or installation steps required.

The full distribution bundles

  • Process Engine configured as shared process engine,
  • Runtime Web Applications (Tasklist, Cockpit, Admin),
  • Rest Api,
  • Container / Application Server itself.


If you download the full distribution for an open-source application server/container, the container itself is included. For example, if you download the Tomcat distribution, Tomcat itself is included and the Camunda binaries (process engine and web apps) are pre-installed in the container. This is not true for the the Oracle WebLogic and IBM WebSphere downloads; these downloads do not include the application servers themselves.

Wildfly Application Server

Wildfly Application Server is provided as part of the archives as a convenience. For a copy of the source code, the full set of attribution notices, and other relevant information please see We will also provide you with a copy of the source code if you contact our Open-Source Compliance Team at any time within three years of you downloading an archive (for which we may charge a nominal sum).
