    Comparision matrix for jBPM

    Purvi Shah Newbie

      Hi,

      I need Matrix(Comparison of jBPM with other WF engine-Marketing & technical Perspective) for jBPM, If it is available.

      I need some more documentation on jBPM (Basic material) which can give me idea how to start with jBPM.

      I have referred jBPM User Guide and other stuff.
      But I found it is not more comprehensive.

      Regards

          To get started download the starter kit. run ant. Then run the Junit test for Websale.

          1. create an ant task for websale.


          <!-- the dependency on compile.identity is necessary to make the identity mapping files available -->








          2. You need to comment out this line in WebSale
          // assertEquals(0, taskInstance.getVariables().size());

          3. set test.classpath like this:

              Try this one more time

              1. comment out a line in WebSale.java
              // assertEquals(0, taskInstance.getVariables().size());
              
              2.
              
              set property in build.xml
              
               <path id="test.classpath">
               <path refid="classpath"/>
               <pathelement path="src/resources" />
               <pathelement path="build/classes.identity.test" />
               <pathelement path="build/classes.jbpm.test" />
               <pathelement path="build/classes.examples" />
               </path>
              
              
              3. add junit test
              
               <target name="websale">
               <!-- the dependency on compile.identity is necessary to make the identity mapping files available -->
               <junit printsummary="yes" haltonfailure="yes">
               <test name="org.jbpm.websale.WebsaleTest" haltonfailure="no" outfile="result">
               <formatter type="plain"/>
               </test>
               <classpath refid="test.classpath" />
               </junit>
               </target>

                for comparision you must look for the criteria of WARIA of comparing open source workflow engine ...

                  You can find some comments from the readers of The Server Side in thread JBoss jBPM 3.1: Multiple process languages and simple principles.

                  As for starting with jBPM, please be more specific on what is troublesome for you.

                    Thanks to both of u,

                    I am new to jBPM,I am Exploring jBPM features.

                    My first requirement is Comparision matrix available for JBPm(if any)

                    As I am preparing Marketting Demo for client.


                    I could not find any link for criteria for WARIA.
                    Can u please forward link to me.

                    I check that serverside link for jBPM-Multi languaage thread...
                    I could not find any comparision sheet.

                    As far as Start to jBPM concern..

                    I have installed jBPM 3.0.2 startup kit.

                    I have Run server(jBPM server) through startup.bat.

                    I open webconsole and Websale application running fine.

                    But when I created process(First test) and i created junit test class also for same.
                    I able to run process through Junit,I got message in console(Process started ansd ended like that)

                    But I am not able to check process in Webconsole,So is it anything Reqd to do to display inwebconsole.--For this problem (posted in forum) u can check link given in next reply.

                    In webconsole I am able to see my process with version equals -1, but Not able to start process instance through Webconsole..

                    So i was in condition , i do not have idea what should do and I am in the right way or not. So i thought if some basic material I can get,I can understand jBPm perfectly.I want to prepare Road MAp for exploring this techology(implementation and effective use of jBPM),So I can learn this technology fast,and will be focus , not feel lost some where.



                    I also want to know what other features are available in jBPM.

                    That way i concerned some basic material(Road Map+Getting Started manual).I have checked jBPm material avaialble at jBPm site.


                    Thank you for help...
