    UI forms in Struts 2

    Bryon Phinney Newbie

      In our application the UI is built with Struts 2. We will not be using JSF or Seam. How best can we integrate our UI Task forms with JBPM?

      In the Advanced tab of the Task dialog, there is an option to generate a form. This creates an xhtml doc ready for JSF. Also a form.xml is created mapping a task to the form page.

      Is there a mechanism that I can use to leverage the form.xml but instead reference a struts action, mapping or page. Also is there a way to tie my form parameters back to the task variables?

      Thanks for the help.

          By using the jBPM API (look at the current webconsole on how to do that)

          Yes, by implementing something in your framework that is identical to what the webconsole does.

          Probably not the answers you wanted, but this is as detailed as I can get without spending to much time on it
