same here..somebody help!!
But I did something with it which I share..
I adownload the jbpm-jpdl-designer-site-3.1.7.zip and then go to the Eclipse Helios
And the Go to Help-->Install New Software-->Add-->and in Archieve give path of the downloaded abve zip. It ll install and u are able to see the Process Definition and Process Project under New Project.....
And then download the jbpm-jpdl-3.2.1 which incuded all the jars needed for the runtime.. and give thata path at the new runtime during process creation..
In this way you are able to run a jBPM project successfully...
If anyone know more about this, then share.'...
I wondering why they don't have a straightforward way to install the jbpm plugins into eclipse and install the runtime !!!
shall we use the ant install.demo ??!!! , some body help because i really hate the first step in jbpm .
it should be well documented as well as powerfull engine.
PLEASE HEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPPPPPPP .
Hi There... I'm not an eclipse user, but if you are an eclipse user you should know how to install plugin in it right? I think that it's not jBPM5 fault to have such a complicate IDE in the back , just kidding.
The install.demo ant goal should do the work for you. If not please let us know the exact problem that you are experiencing.
Thanks for the reply .
i think that JBpm 5 should give a documentation for the Eclipse users as well as the famous IDEs.
What the install.demo do for me ?
I've installed the JBPM installer directory from the link http://hudson.jboss.org/hudson/job/jBPM5/lastSuccessfulBuild/artifact/target/ ,please loock at the files there . In the folder doc i've opened the pdf and it asks you to run ant install.demo ,and as it said
• Download JBoss AS
• Download Eclipse
• Install Drools Guvnor into JBoss AS
• Install Oryx Designer into JBoss AS
• Install the jBPM gwt-console into JBoss AS
• Install the jBPM Eclipse plugin
• Install the Drools Eclipse plugin"
I'm targeting to write a simple workflow application, I don't know which i need to from the above installations and which i don't need .
Do i need the JBoss AS ?
Eclipse already installed , how to disable the installation of eclipse ?
Di i need the all the rest ?
Many thanks Marie ,
I 've followed the steps in the article and run the application successfully , but i have a problem is that i cannot open the process.bpmn file in the process editor . or it's not installed successfully .
You mean you don't see image of workflow process as in background of this picture?
Do you get any error? What does it mean you cannot open? Do you see only raw XML?
You should definetely provide more information if you want any advice?
I've solved it.
it was a problem in eclipse helios is that it cannot take drools plugin so i can open the process editor.
i've cleaned the eclipse and remove the drools plugin and feature jars from the eclipse 's plugin and features dirs , then i've install new software from the help tab and choose the drools update site .
Now it works , Thank You Very Much for the help .
I thinkl nopw i can build J2SE work flow application
Hello everybody! I'm trying to install JBPM5 but there is a problem: i followed the guide and i have download from http://hudson.jboss.org/hudson/job/jBPM5/lastSuccessfulBuild/artifact/target/ the install.zip file, but when i try to install it with the command ant install.demo, the process break because it doesn't download and unzip the file of eclipse-helios...so, this morning i read this post and i followed the other guide on link http://community.jboss.org/people/bpmn2user/blog/2011/02/27/eclipse-plug-in-installation-for-jbpm5... but there is the same problem: the file on http://download.eclipse.org/technology/epp/downloads/release/helios/R/eclipse-java-helios-win32.zip is damaged!!
Now i have decided to download this file directly from the site of eclipse but i don't know what version I can download:
or Eclipse Classic 3.6.2, ??
Please help me... at the beginning i have found so many problem!!
eclipse-SDK-3.6.1-win32 is working fine with me here, you can find the download link if you google it.
Hi stellina ,
I've suffered from the install.demo ant script , i advice you to do the download and installation manually
1) download jbpm files from this , http://hudson.jboss.org/hudson/job/jBPM5/lastSuccessfulBuild/artifact/target/
1) any version of eclipse (Personnaly i'm using helios) .
then follow the link post from Marie , but instead to add the plugins manually use help --> instal new software to add the jbpm plugin and drools tools that you've dowloaded in step 1 ,
and then it 'll works .
You can use any version you like. You just need to tell ant which version you are going to use. This can be done by making changes in build.xml and build.properties.
If you dont want all the stuff that is installed by running install.demo then you can separtely call the targets defined in build.xml. or you can remove those targets from build file.
In case of jbpm 3, you can simply create task forms and process in eclipse and deploy it and then can access the process from the web console. Make sure you download the suite pack. It comes with a pre configured jboss server.
The following procedure worked using JBPM 5.4.0 and Eclipse Indigo:
- Download JBPM 5 full installation:
- Extract it in a folder:
- jbpm-installer folder is created
- we will call this path %JBPM_HOME%
- Edit %JBPM_HOME%\build.xml file:
- Replace line <target name="install.droolsjbpm-eclipse.into.eclipse" depends="download.droolsjbpm.eclipse">; take out the dependency so that it becomes:
- Open a command prompt, cd %JBPM_HOME%
- ant download.droolsjbpm.eclipse
- ant install.jBPM.runtime
- ant install.droolsjbpm-eclipse.into.eclipse
- copy all files that are now inside %JBPM_HOME%\eclipse\features into your %ECLIPSE_HOME%\features
- copy all files that are now inside %JBPM_HOME%\eclipse\plugins into your %ECLIPSE_HOME%\plugins
- Restart Eclipse
- On Eclipse File -> New -> Project… -> JBPM Project
- When you are asked to provide JBPM runtime:
- Go to “Configure workspace settings…” -> Add
- Choose a name (i.e. Default)
- Browse for path and select %JBPM_HOME%\runtime
This simply installs the eclipse plugins and runtime
