    Transition navigation

    Tej jbpm Novice

      Hi all,

      I have two nodes called approve and reject in my task node.

      I want to be able to code the conditional transition in my JSF..

      If approve is clicked go to - myportal.jsf

      IF reject is clicked go to the next transition and show the corresponding form - basically a URL with the task id..

      here is my code

      <j4j:loadTask id="#{id}" target="#{task}"/>
       <j4j:completeTask task="#{task}" transition="#{transition.name}"/>
       <n:nav outcome="success" url="myportal.jsf" storeMessages="true"/>
       <n:nav outcome="error" redirect="true" storeMessages="true"/>

      My confusion is how to calculate the outcome as reject - where to set it? or I want to give a condition in my nav url checking the transition name and then redirect to the corresponding page. Currently both are redirected to myportal.jsf..please help..

          This is not supported, sorry... You have to extend the jsf taglib or switch to e.g. using more plain jsf things (or the jbpm/jsf/seam combo)

            I achieved this..

            I set the url variable in taskBean conditionally. For that i need to know the transition name..so this is what i did
            Set a action commandlink based on what is clicked..this action method in taskBean sets the transition name..I pass the transition name using setPropertyActionListener method..

            <h:commandLink id="transition#{rid}" style="display:none; visibility: hidden;" action="#{taskBean.action}">
             <f:setPropertyActionListener target="#{taskBean.transitionName}" value="#{transition.name}" />

            URL is the variable in my taskBean class..and I retrieve it using:

            <n:nav outcome="success" url= "#{taskBean.url}" storeMessages="true"/>
