    JpdlXmlReader methods missing?

    Andrig Miller Newbie

      I am following the first simply example of how to create a process definition, and test it with JUnit. The example JUnit test is as follows:

       ProcessDefinition processDefinition =
       assertNotNull("Definition should not be null", processDefinition);
       ProcessInstance processInstance =
       new ProcessInstance(processDefinition);
       assertEquals("Instance is in a start state"
       , processInstance.getRootToken().getNode().getName()
       , "auction");
       assertEquals("Instance in in end state"
       , processInstance.getRootToken().getNode().getName()
       , "end1");
       assertTrue("Instance has ended"
       , processInstance.hasEnded());

      The method parseFromResource is not a method on the JpdlXmlReader class. Was there some refactoring done that is not represented in the documentation? I tried looking around the other packages and classes but didn't find a match for this. Any help is appreciated.

      I am using the JBoss IDE M3 release with the jBPM plugin included, and using the 1.5 JVM from Sun (JDK 1.5.0_04)

          Also ...
          The HelloWorld example in the Tutorial refers to a method to parse an xml string returning a ProcessDefinition, and that method doesn't exist either.

          ProcessDefinition def = JdplXmlReader.parse(...)

            Try this instead ...

            ... = ProcessDefinition.parseXmlResource(filename);

              Thanks, that did the trick.

                I am using the same example and I encouter the following error:

                The line thats causing the problem is:
                ProcessDefinition definition = ProcessDefinition.parseXmlResource("hello.par/processdefinition.xml");

                I am currently using the latest version with Eclipse, the RC1 package.

                  I solved it by using the latest JVM version 1.5. This thread http://www.jboss.org/?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=70542 helped me.

                    Alternatively, you can build everything from source using the 1.4 JDK.

                      funny how many people post this issue first and then find the solution themselves.....in the forum

                        The method

                        ProcessDefinition definition = ProcessDefinition.parseXmlResource("simple.par/processdefinition.xml");

                        doesn't read correctly my processdefinition.xml file.

                        It only reads the first task. The next task doesn'st exist for him.
                        My program only works if i put my xml inside my java code and use parseXmlString.

                        Here is my processdefinition.xml ot see.

                        <?xml version="1.0"?>
                        <process-definition name='simple'>
                         <start-state name='start'>
                         <transition to='registo_ocorrencia'/>
                         <!-- Tarefa 1 -->
                         <task-node name='registo_ocorrencia'>
                         <task name='RegistoOcorrenciaTask'>
                         <transition to='lista_tarefas'/>
                         <!-- Tarefa 2 -->
                         <task-node name='lista_tarefas'>
                         <task name='ListaTarefasTask'/>
                         <transition to='notificacoes'/>
                         <!-- Tarefa 3 -->
                         <task-node name='notificacoes'>
                         <task name='NotificacoesTask'>
                         <transition to='end'/>
                         <end-state name='end'></end-state>

                        I repeat, when i use ProcessDefinition.parseXmlResource("simple.par/processdefinition.xml");, my java code only reads the first task. The others tasks are forgotten.
                        If i put the xml file inside the java, it works perfectly.

                        Is there any other command that substitutes parseXmlResource and works correctly
