Please bear with me. I am new to not only jBPM but also J2EE. I have been struggling and working on a proof of concept to use jBPM on Weblogic. I need to find out if I am on the right course.
If I use the downloaded jbpm-enterprise.ear and manage to swap out jboss.xml with weblogic specific deployment descriptor (weblogic-ejb-jar.xml), then deploy. Should that work? Anything else I need do besides configuring hibernate?
I like to have a message driven bean be called from a stand alone java program. Then the MDB will start the workflow process. Is it a correct way to have the MDB to load process definition and signal the token to start the process just like many sample unit tests have demonstrated? I guess my question is instead of using the web console interface, what's the right way to programmatically start and transition the process.
Thank in advance for your help!
yes it is a good way, just do not have your standalone app call the mdb, but have it put a message in a queue ;-)
