Yes you can use any frond end technology that you want. jBPM5 exposes a set of APIs that helps you to build your Task List Oriented Applications.
If you want to use JSF / JSP you can use the APIs directly.
Let us know if we can help you with something else.
thanks for your quick response!
I just took a look at jBPM 4, because I had some issues using version 5.
I'll take a closer look at v.5 the next days .
Does jBPM 4 also support JSP/JSF-(Task-)Forms? I just found something about the ftl-Templates in the User/Developer Guide.
regards and a big thanks
Cool, no problem.
If you have questions about jBPM5 don't hesitate to ask here, I'm here to help!
I assume if I access the tasks using the API (with jBPM 4.4) I'll face the same problems which I had in a previous project.
(There I used Microsoft SharePoint Services with custom Task Forms).
- How do I access the specific Task? (is it: passing the Task-ID to the form and access the task thorugh this ID in a Bean or something like this?)
- Where can I store the Task-Form-Values? (can I create something like a Hash-Table which I can access throughout the whole process?)
Remind that I want to use JSF-Forms .
Thanks for responses!
I still have the following problem
If I am using a JSF-Form, how can I get my Form-Data into the Variables-Table of jBPM?
I know that I need to create a HashMap, but is there a common and generic way to do so?
So I want to save all the Form-Data in the Database...
thanks for your answer.
I already knew the setVariables-Method. So do I have to loop through each Input-Element on my Form and set a new Variable inside the Loop?
Or do you suggest another, less difficult, possibility?
Thanks again and regards.
No you wont have to call setVariable() for each variable. setVariables() takes Map as argument. Calling it once would set all the variables in the Map.
Sorry I dont know any other way for doing this.
my question is: which way would you use to generate a Map from a Form?
Only way I know of is to add each variable. Which ideally is not something to be followed. If I find anything related, i ll post here man
Need a little help on calling the Task Forms via code without console as discussed above. I have my application front end in JSF and from the process I need to call a specific task form which is also a JSF. Is there somewhere a link to this topic in the forum or can you throw some light on this please..
Can you please elaborate this one. I am using jBPM 5.4.
"Yes you can use any frond end technology that you want. jBPM5 exposes a set of APIs that helps you to build your Task List Oriented Applications.

I am new to this, Now I can able to deploy the project which has .ftl as taskfrom into guvnor and it works fine. I need to use .jsp instead of .ftl.
So you have mentioned like we can use APIs, That means we need to create/use the api instead of guvnor page or we need to use jsp with servlet and calling the process from there. Guide me to the path..
