look at the ant task in the examples dir of the installation. If you used 'ant demo.setup' the examples can be deployed with an ant task. Just copy that for now.
I am a little confused as to why this wasn't added when the gwt-console was built. Wouldn't that be one of the most obvious things to have in there? I will write a small web app. Maybe I will write some GWT and contribute it. I can't believe loading a process definition was left out. It really is the heart of jBPM. I am really disappointed and am not filled with great confidence about jBPM4.
There was limited time. Since deploying is possible in another way and showing definitions/tasklists/taskforms/... isn't, it is not a really a strange choice I think. If missing this makes you feel like you describe, I unfortunately cannot do much for you, how much I'd like to.
How do I deploy a process definition in jBPM4. I don't see a place to do it on the GWT console. The eclipse plugin doesn't have any tabs for deployment like the plugin for jBPM3. Obviously I can modify the ant install scripts but that seems like a last resort. How do I do it?
For the JBoss AS container, there is another approach you can do to the deploy. it is that build the bar file, and then copy it directly into the JBoss server's deploy folder. and then you are ready to go. you can see this (http://jeff.familyyu.net/2009/07/getting-started-with-jbpm-40-part-iii.html) for detail.
As Ronald said, given the limited time and resource, it takes time for us to do all the features.. but we definitely like your contributions to our project, actually, this is the big benefit of open source, isn't it?
I tried dropping the .bar file into the deploy directory with no results. I will look into the bar deployer and see if there are some issues.
There are/were some issues with the deployer from what I remember. Searching the dev forum might shed some light on it.
OK. I wrote a small web app to do deployment for the short term. The new jBPM looks great. I really like the changes. They all seem to be for the better. Thanks guys.
