    mkrishna143 Newbie

      Hi everyone,
      I had completed the steps mentioned in the URL:
      http://docs.jboss.com/jbpm/v3/gpd/index.html

          This helps you create a process definition and test it.

          Are you asking how to deploy the process definition into the database? That would deploying the par file.

          I'm not sure if the GPD comes with a build.xml so you can do it with ant. I've got one, but it's been so long, I'm not sure if I made it from scratch or it came with the GPD.

          I've included the build.xml for reference. You will need to change it to fit your project, but it is very handy...

            Hi,
            Thanks for your reply.
            I am in need of a complete documentation about :
            What are all the steps that I have to do
            For creating a web application into the Application server using the created par file.
            I need the link for the documentation.
            I am clueless about the next steps for deploying my application.
            Regards,
            Krishnakumar M
