    Invoking perl?s scripts in Jbpm

    Fernández Matabuena Newbie

      Hi all!!
      I am try to migrate a workflow which is right now in a UNIX's cron to jbpm. I am wondering if it is possible to invoke Perl scripts through jbpm nodes. Does anybody knows ?

          if you can execute perl from java (regardles of jbpm) then it is possible. jBPM itself does not have anything to do with this.

            ok, That is what I trying to do ... It does not work but hopefully It will work... but I am also asking myself if this kind of process, calling Perl?s scripts that process a lot of information, will impact in the reliability and performance of the jboss & jbpm because the point is that those scripts are executed every day and are critical for the system.
            Maybe the question is: is it worth to migrate a huge structure that is the cron of a UNIX, which process a lot of information, to jbpm ?
            Thanks for your help in advance.
            Best regards,
