    Webforms and more info

    SERGIO MAURICIO PIAMONTE Newbie

      Hi there...

      Well I´m newbie in JBPM and I´m trying to understand everything with this engine. One of the things I´m concerned is about what in the courses call web forms. but there is not information in the tutorials

      I understand almost the things that engine and jpdl, but if I want to make some process with people interacting, and using some webforms for the users , and for several administrators, without using the aplication that come with starter kit as default. Othe words, I would like to create my own webforms for control the workflows.

      other thing for this forms is if anybody knows how to create color bars associated with the workflow status in the time.

      may be in the jportal is any help with this?

      thanks in advance

          If you want to create customized forms, you have to rely on the technology of your choice and use JSF, Struts, etc... The default mechanism uses a simple rendering mechanism that shows forms based on a default task controller.

            Thanks Koen for your answer. as I told you before I´m newbie,and I have investigated a little more, and noted that I could use Jboss Seam, but , on the other hand, may I can use Jboss portal, building Portlets... I´m just almost guessing......

            What I´m trying to make for my company, is a trouble ticket application (for help desk), There are groups, with a different skill every one, each group has few agents.

            We need to place a ticket for and distribute it in that group, establish and control service level agreetments SLA´s, between groups (when they send the flow to the other group) in a workflow enviroment, with alerts, event notification, and task control.

            Every agent or user has different rights to read, modify and collaborate each process instance, depending on his skills and rights.

            As you note, we can buy a commercial application for this, but I´m insisting that we can make it under jboss platform.

            What a I need is a little orientation about, where do I have to focus my efforts, since there are several web technologies at jboss and I couldn´t follow all projects documentation, as I would like it.

            I think portal would be great because it manages users and groups, but I don´t know if that users are integrated with directory service at JBPM.

            I could see a Jboss seam demo, and maybe it could work,


            So Koen, for mi , it´s a goal to develope this small project using jboss technologies, I really want to take some courses, but currecntly I´m in South America, and there is not any training avaialbility here, so any help is welcome.

            Thanks and best regards ans sorry about my English

              I have to point out that I did not talk about commercial applications, only about the web technology of your choice... I think that for your needs JBoss Seam is definitely the way to go. It provides a nice integration with jBPM and it simplifies web development a lot. Look in particular to some of their jBPM integration examples.
