    How do I make jbpm web admin console to work in jbpm-bpel?

    Jiehuan Li Newbie

      I installed jbpm-3.1.1 on jboss as 4.0.4 GA patch 1, and it worked fine after I updated ehcache-1.1 to ehcache-1.2 under jbpm.sar. I was able to launch the jbpm web app at http://localhost:8080/jbpm to run the demo app and to monitor processes, however the administration tab gives a page with only the word "TODO" on it. Then I copied jbpm-bpel-1.1-beta1.sar to deploy directory, things in bpel works fine, but when I try to access http://localhost:8080/jbpm again, it throws the following exception:

      I wonder what I need to do to make both jbpm app and jbpm-bpel work together. The deeper reason for me to ask this is that I may have dead processes hanging in jbpm-bpel due to unavailable web services at run-time and I'll have to manually push things through to end the processes. Jbpm web admin console seems to allow me to do the manual push through, but I haven't been able to make it work with jbpm-bpel. Any help would be highly appreciated.
