jBPM4 hasnt been tested yet on Websphere. But when you use jBPM as a standalone library, I don't expect any problems.
There is no dependency on EJB3 to function correctlym jBPM is Java SE library.
My client wants to be able to use the new GWT-Console for jBPM and deploy the examples (packaged in JBPM4.zip) in websphere without any problem.
As I went through the source code of JBPM and gwt-console, gwt-console-server, jbpm-console-integration, etc, it looks like there is a realtime dependency of the ProcessEngine in the GWT-Console.
This ProcessEngine is bound as a JNDI resource somewhere.
Also, after going through the build.xml file inside the jbpm4.0/jboss folder, I found a jbpm-service.sar and a deployer is installed in the respective JBoss version.
What I think is that I might have to create a similar artifact for WAS 6.1 too. But I am not quite sure how that can be done. Can any one help me out with this???
Currently, the jbpm console only works out-of-the-box for JBoss. Tomcat support is on the roadmap, so this should facilitate deploying it on websphere.
Well JBPM 4.0 can be easily ported to Websphere 6.1. Send me a personal mail I will reply you with the steps to port JBPM 4.0 on Websphere 6.1. :)
Why don't you also post the steps here in the forum. Might be useful for people searching for some assistance when faced with the same issue.
I am interested in deploying jBPM 4 on WebSphere 6.1/7.0. Does any one have any success? What are the steps?
Thanks & Regards,
1. Place the following files inside web-inf/classes folder
2. place jbpm.jar and hibernate related jars inside web-inf/lib folder
I spent a lot of time but able to deploy the jBPM4.0 on was6.1
Here is the info which will help :-
Component ----- Deployment Artifact
Console UI ----- gwt-console.war
Console Server----- gwt-console-server.war
Domain model ----- gwt-console-rpc.jar
Integration Layer ----- gwt-console-server-integration.jar
before deploying the web application it needs to create a schema for running application properly ,schema script is there in the downloaded jBPM4.0, Even without schema it is possible to run application but u won't be able to see any thing on screen :)
Download the jBPM form location
The Components are in available in lib directory.
Deployment of console UI/Server component on server
Import gwt-console.war and gwt-console-server.war in eclipse as war project file.
Map all the jar files in build path of server project which is available in lib directory.
Now run the server adding both the war files.
You will able to see a login page which is a client interface after giving credential test/test application redirect to server pages .
