    jbpm and portlet

    peter Apprentice

      Hi All

      I already make jbpm works successfully within ejb eniroment.

      Linux+PostgreSQL+jbossportal 2.2.1+jboss app server 4.0.3SP1.

      Now, i am trying to develope a few common portlets for jbpm. What portlets are the most important candidates?

      (1)TaskInstance portlet? (for admin or for single owner)????
      I think this portlet sould retrieve the task instances belong to current role of the authenticated user. maybe not. maybe owned by current authenticated user?
      (2)ProcessInstance Portlet? (what functions should it include?)
      (3)Deployment (i don't think it is necessary because deployment can be easily done by current servlets included)?

      Any suggestions are appreciated.

          1: Yes, primarily for the owner, both role/group tasklist and individual tasklist. Each individual and combined (so 3 portlets?)
          2: Less important, but just show a list of all processes to be started, either by retrieving a list from jbpm or configure it statically based on role, role outside jbpm?)
          3: Nope

            Yes. i am using jbossportal identity module instead of using jbpm itself. So, the role outside jbpm.

              Hi,
              I am really new in the jBPM, but my suggestions are
              1. user task list client should cover UI and framework may be for displaying forms (similar to Staffware or IBM Process Server)

              Another portlet is for user management (not directly conected with jBPM but needed for administration) stand in for sb., holidays scheduling ...

              regards,
              Martin

                regarding the usermanagement, It 's on te todo list to see if this can be combined with the portal usermanagement, mayb as a separate 'service'

                  Please help!
                  Can you give me some help on how to configure JBPM to work with JBoss AS and portal?

                  I have installed JBoss application server 4.0.4; then deployed Jportal by copy jboss-portal.sar to default/deploy directory; I modified and installed portal-postgres-ds.xml too. Now Jboss portal is working through http://localhost:8080/portal. But I can not make JBPM working the same way. I copied jbpm.sar and jbpm.war and add DS definitions for jbpm in portal-postfres-de.xml. When point the browser to http://localhost:8080/jbpm, I have following error message:
                  exception
