    [jBPM4] Task Forms

    Nils Preusker Newbie

      Hi all,

      I'm currently integrating jBPM4 with a tapestry 4.1.5 based web application. I've seen that there are some example task forms (.ftl files) in the src/test/resources directory of the jBPM4 trunk, but I couldn't find any test cases or documentation of the task forms that would explain how they are inteded to be used. The only thing I found is the post at http://www.jboss.org/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=155048, but it doesn't explain how to actually deploy the templates and how to retrieve instances of the forms in a web application. Also, the ${form.action} expression is a bit of a mystery to me. Is this a process variable as we know it from jpdl files?

      Any hints would be appreciated, thanks in advance! Cheers, Nils

          In the current console, they the forms work when you give them the name of a task and put them in the 'root' of your process deployment. How they work internally can be seen in the example forms.

          Retrieval is done in the console. Look in the gwt-console forum on some hints how to use/extend/replace the form implementation (ftl) with something else.

          ${form.action} to my knowledge is a specifically for the way the ftl forms work. If you have your own tapestry implementation, that would work differently. The form mechanism is now more loosly coupled to the console
