Lightning Process Builder


I am currently building a a app for the app exchange and thought it would be a good idea to explore the Lightning Process Builder as an alternative to apex for complex business logic.

I have recently been reading the guide however and it states.

"Processes aren't supported in the Metadata API, change sets, or packages"
"Processes aren't supported in organizations with a registered namespace"

Does this mean that I cannot use them in my App Exchange Package.  Is this limitation imposed as it is currently in beta/pilot. Will it be possible to include Lightning Builder Processes in an App Exchange package once the functionality hits General Availability.

The Lightning process builder is still new and beta, and hence the limitations, just like the Lightning components. This should change in the future, as it becomes Genarally Available.

Hi Hugh,

in Lightning Components there are two pieces. 1. Client side controllers 2. Server side controller. 

Server side controllers still have to be written in APEX and expose them with @AuraEnabled notation. Also, it is still in beta and not generally available.

Thanks and if this answered your question, please like this answer.
