    A question about jBPM console

    Farinaz Ghasemi Newbie

      Dear friends,

      As you know in chapter1.Introduction in jBPM user guide docs the is a paragraph as follows:

      1.5. The JBoss jBPM console web application

      The jBPM console web application serves two purposes. First, it serves as a central user interface for interacting with runtime tasks generated by the process executions. And secondly, it is an administration and monitoring console that allows inspecting and manipulating runtime instances.

      Where is the web console?
      When I started JBoss under ?c jbpm mode and typed:

      http://localhost:8080/jbpm

      I saw the login.jsp page of the pre-deployed jbpm.war web application.
      Can we use this file for our own task management purposes?is it generic?
      Or is it a sample to show the users how we can use jBPM API?

      The explanation above makes some ambiguity for me and I'll be so appreciate if you answer me.
      Best Regards,

          Hi,
          I have the same problem, I don't see anything in the jbpm.war file that could be relevant for the administration and monitoring of current business processes ?

            did you try to click on the monitor link in the webapp? There is some functionality, not extensive but it does work.

                  Mennen Newbie

                  And can anyone help me with the graphical designer problem i'm facing?

                  I am using GPD 3.0.5, and whenever I deploy a process (other than websale) and i start a process instance, the picture appears on the right as planned, but the red box that should tell us at what stage of the pocess we are is not centered..it's sometimes too small, or misplaced.. I don't know what the real cause is..
                  Could it be the way I deploy it? (i do it in Eclipse by right-clicking on the .par and selecting "deploy PAR archive")


                  Thanks in advance,

                  Mennen

                    Hi mennen
                    For your first question-start jbpm server from $jbpm-server /start.bat
                    Then through browser start http://localhost:8080/jbpm
                    you will able to find webconsole

                      Hi purvi.shah,
                      I tried http://localhost:8080/jbpm/, and on the left menu, i did not find any webconsole. All I found was Home, Administration, and Monitoring..
                      And all of them give me this error:

                        this is the webconsole. Did you log in before selecting one of the menu items on the left?

                          I logged in and it works.. so thanks kukeltje. But there's something weird that happens.. when i click on HOME on the left, the processes under "start new process" disappear.. and only the task list is still there
                          i.e. the process definition don't appear.. but when i click back to get the page of login, they appear back again..

                            And now i tried to refresh the page: and when i refresh it, everything goes back to normal.. but when i do it again, the same part disappears.. i don't know if it 's because of JSF or not..

                            Thanks

                              This happens in mine as well, very regularly, every other time I click on home, the bottom section will dissappear, then when I click again, it will reappear.

                              I reproduced this on seperate systems in multiple browsers, to confirm that it is not just a browser snafu.

                                are there any errors in the logging when it fails?

                                  Also a bug, this time in the console... AFAIK it is not hunted down yet and it will probably never be as the webapp will be revamped...
