    JBPM5, Spring, BTM and Tomcat

    snyperboss Newbie

      Hello All,

       

       

      Will I be able to configure JBPM5 for persistence in a web application using XA datasource configured using Spring and BTM .

      I dont want to make any changes in the tomcat configuration.

      Will I be able to do this or will I have to modify the tomcat server.xml etc?

       

      Thanks!

          Yes you should be able. Maybe this can help you

            After Googling for a while I came across this post.

             

            http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5027539/bitronix-spring-hibernate-persistence

             

            I think this might not be possible.

             

             

            What is the disadvantage of runnig JBPM5 process in non persistent mode? 

             

            Or can I configure the persistant mode  to run without a XA datasource ie without any third party Transaction manager like Bitronix.

             

             

            Another question is if my server crash and if the process was at a human task node, will it be still at the same node after a restart and would it

            be able to continue from there without a persistence configuration or will I have to start the process from the beginning?

             

             

            Thanks!

                In JBPM5.1  ,  JPAKnowledgeService must be find jndi of transaction from container.

                    Hi,

                     

                    This is how I create the session using the above spring configuration.

                     

                     

                    public static StatefulKnowledgeSession createSession() throws Exception {
                             
                            /* 
                             * Create the knowledgebase using the required bpmn and drl files 
                             */ 
                            KnowledgeBase kbase = readKnowledgeBase("SampleHumanTaskFormVariables.bpmn"); 
                            //EntityManagerFactory emf = Persistence.createEntityManagerFactory( "org.jbpm.persistence.jpa" ); 
                             
                             
                             
                            EntityManagerFactory emf  = (EntityManagerFactory) HumanTaskStartupServlet.context.getBean("entityManagerFactoryJbpmPersistanceJpa"); 
                             
                         
                             
                            Environment env = KnowledgeBaseFactory.newEnvironment(); 
                            env.set( EnvironmentName.ENTITY_MANAGER_FACTORY, emf ); 
                            env.set( EnvironmentName.TRANSACTION_MANAGER, HumanTaskStartupServlet.context.getBean("bitronixTransactionManager") ); 
                            env.set( EnvironmentName.TRANSACTION, HumanTaskStartupServlet.context.getBean("bitronixTransactionManager") ); 
                            env.set( EnvironmentName.GLOBALS, new MapGlobalResolver() );
                             
                            Properties properties = new Properties(); 
                            properties.put("drools.processInstanceManagerFactory", "org.jbpm.persistence.processinstance.JPAProcessInstanceManagerFactory"); 
                            properties.put("drools.processSignalManagerFactory", "org.jbpm.persistence.processinstance.JPASignalManagerFactory"); 
                            KnowledgeSessionConfiguration config = KnowledgeBaseFactory.newKnowledgeSessionConfiguration(properties);
                         
                            return JPAKnowledgeService.newStatefulKnowledgeSession(kbase, config, env);
                                 
                        } 
                        

                     

                    Thanks!

                      Thanks for the quik reply.

                       

                      Actually i confused with the below two steps,

                       

                      env.set( EnvironmentName.TRANSACTION_MANAGER, HumanTaskStartupServlet.context.getBean("bitronixTransactionManager") );
                      env.set( EnvironmentName.TRANSACTION, HumanTaskStartupServlet.context.getBean("bitronixTransactionManager") );

                       

                      Now i have corrected and it is working fine now HSQL db

                       

                      Also for all the transaction, i am using the same "bitronixTransactionManager" object like below,

                       

                      bitronixTransactionManager.begin();

                      bitronixTransactionManager.commit()

                       

                      is that correct ??

                       

                       

                      Still i found the "StatefulKnowledgeSession" and all BPMN conf  also configurable in spring itself instead of doing this way,i have to implement like this later.

                      http://community.jboss.org/message/599448

                       

                       

                      Now i am trying to use XA Database to point Oracle.getting some issues

                       

                      Thanks again for your help!!

                       

                      Tc.

                        Guys,

                        Are you also using JPA in your project. Am trying to use Spring 3 + JTA + JPA + Bitronix. I dont have any issues in persisting data into Task/Process tables howevfer whiel inserting into APP DB, no data is getting inserted and no error is shown.

                         

                         

                        In your case, are inserts into app db also part of transaction? if so, Can you please share that configuration
