    how to integrate a long external task that may fail and noti

    peter wyckoff Newbie

      My workflow is composed of non-java (perl) tasks which are long running and may fail and would send notification of success or failure asyncronously.

      I want to know the best way to

      a) call out to the service and then enter a wait state
      b) recieve a notification from the service on success/failure (JMS?)
      c) retry the task on a timeout

      The main results of the task are actually written to a netapp so data isn't an issue (and of course the results are written idempotently so retry isn't a problem).

      I'm new to J2EE/JBOSS.

      Thanks, pete
