    jBPM and rules engine integration: CFE

    Tom Baeyens Master

      This is an official Call For Examples (CFE) :-)

      High on our priorities list is the integration between jBPM and the drools rules engine. When we are going to do this integration it would be good if we could work out some small, meaningful examples.

      We are looking for concrete, small and meaningful examples in which a jPDL could be combined with some Drools rules.

      Any ideas or requests ?

      regards, tom.

          An example section in the wiki with real world scenarios and the code used to proces a jpdl would be useful.

          For those that don't know the source code has some great examples (jbpm.test).

          Slightly off topic: Does anyone know why you would use processInstance.signal(), instead of taskInstance.signal() or instead of taskInstance.end(). They all transition to the next node. But I don't know why you would use one over another. But I know taskInstance.end() closes the task, therefore I prefer that one. An explanation of that would help ;)

            Example scenarios dealing with the identity component may be useful.

            It seems to integrate jbpm into a legacy application it's easier to discard the jbpm identity component. If I want to limit access to an jbpm action in a legacy application, I protect the method based on an a role in an existing rbac system. From my perspective it appears a lot easier that way. But what are some example scenarios where you really need the jbpm identity component?
