    Spring integration: No platformTransaction manager defined e

    Adam Becevello Newbie

      I'm trying to integrate jBPM into an existing Spring web application, however I have been unsuccessful in running a workflow with the Spring integrations.

      Environment: Tomcat 6, Spring 2.5, jBPM 4.0, Hibernate 3.2.6.GA, Oracle 10g, running on Java 1.6 with Eclipse 3.4 (MyEclipse 7.5).

      I have tried to configure jBPM with Spring according to the instructions in the developer guide (http://docs.jboss.com/jbpm/v4.0/devguide/html_single/#springIntegration), but so far it hasn't worked.

      Tomcat will start successfully and the application can be used until any workflows are executed. Then I get the error:

       org.jbpm.api.JbpmException: No platformTransaction manager defined.
       at org.jbpm.pvm.internal.tx.SpringTransactionInterceptor.execute(SpringTransactionInterceptor.java:60)

      my.jbpm.cfg.xml (located on classpath):
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <jbpm-configuration>
       <process-engine-context>

       <script-language name="juel"
       factory="org.jbpm.pvm.internal.script.JuelScriptEngineFactory" />
       </script-manager>

       <transaction-context>

       <db-session />
       <message-session />
       <timer-session />
       <history-session />
       <transaction />
       <hibernate-session current="true" />
       </transaction-context>
      </jbpm-configuration>
      


      Relevant spring application context:
      <bean id="jbpmConfiguration" class="org.jbpm.pvm.internal.cfg.SpringConfiguration">
       <constructor-arg value="my.jbpm.cfg.xml" />
       </bean>
      
       <bean id="processEngine" factory-bean="jbpmConfiguration" factory-method="buildProcessEngine" />
       <bean id="repositoryService" factory-bean="processEngine" factory-method="getRepositoryService" />
       <bean id="executionService" factory-bean="processEngine" factory-method="getExecutionService" />
      


      I can't figure out why this error is happening. I have an appropriate Spring sessionFactory defined in Spring, as well as the usual Spring hibernateTemplate and HibernateTransactionManager:
      <tx:annotation-driven transaction-manager="txManager" />
      
      <bean id="hibernateTemplate" class="org.springframework.orm.hibernate3.HibernateTemplate">
       <property name="sessionFactory" ref="sessionFactory"/>
       <property name="jdbcExceptionTranslator" ref="jdbcExceptionTranslator"/>
       </bean>
      
       <bean id="txManager"
       class="org.springframework.orm.hibernate3.HibernateTransactionManager">
       <property name="sessionFactory" ref="sessionFactory" />
       <property name="prepareConnection">
       <value>false</value>
       </property>
       </bean>
      


      Does anyone know why this error is happening and how to fix it?
      Thanks!
