I hope you saw this reference too: http://guvtalk.blogspot.com/2011/03/atompub-interface-for-guvnor.html, where Andrew describes his contribution, but you are right that there is no support to compile packages through this API. From a Governance perspective I would argue that this does not belong in a Governance tool either. However the drools functionality has crossed to line into IDE territory, So from that perspective it may make sense to support it. If you can elaborate on your use case, then maybe we can find a way to put it on the roadmap.
our project is in the initial phase, that we are doing some investigation
you know, we are thinking about the automate delivery and testing, for example, use ant, or maven
a general case is that:
- compile project source code
- create package on guvnor if need
- delete old bpmn file from remote guvnor repository if need
- deploy new bpmn file into remote guvnor repository
- compile the package on guvnor
steps 1 ~ 4 are OK, i think, since there are REST APIs for them
but for step 5, seems it's not feasible at present
talks about the action
wouldn't that be what you are asking for?
correct, that exactly what i want, i have been read it...
lot work have be done, but still one problem is the "compile" funtion is till missing
i'm wondering is there any timeline for it
All right, we've come full circle . The easy answer is no there is no timeline for it.. Next best thing to do it file a jira feature request for it (and provide a patch!).
