    Question and remark about mail-templates

    Sebastian Schneider Master

      Good morning,

      I got a question and a remark regarding mail-templates.

      First of all I neither like the idea of storing the templates inside the process definition nor inside the jbpm configuration. Okay, for templates with are used in several process definitions this is probably a good solution but if you happen to have complex templates or if they should be changeable easily without having to deal with process definitions or jbpm-configuration an extra file would be comfortable.

      So what about an extra file coming within the business archive and storing process specific mail-templates using the same mechanism to reference them as done in process definitions with templates which have been defined in your jbpm configuration?


      Now my problem:

      I am using a jbpm setup on Tomcat and I am using the ant task to deploy my process definitions. I wanted to use mail templates defined in the jbpm-configuration on Tomcat and I ran into a problem.

      I am not sure if the jbpm.cfg.xml I changed is really used by the set-up ( install/generated/cfg/jbpm.cfg.xml) because when I tried to access the process definitions I got an exception telling me that the mail-templates could not be found.

      The template seems to be fine because to deploy my process definition to the database I had to put the mail-template definitions in the "local" jbpm-configuration (so not the one used on the server) to make the ant-task work.

      Kind regards
      Sebastian
