    JBPM 2 Wiki Bridge

    Gregor Fellenz Newbie

      SORRY! I also posted this to the JBoss jBPM Forum. But its probaby better saved here.

      Hello

      I have a plan: I want to write something like a "jbpm-Plugin", that updates a wiki whenever new workflow-instances are created and finished. I don't want to implement that into the design of the workflow process. It should be something that you can plug into "any" jbpm installation, and then it starts writing to a wiki. I am writing a little Servlet for the snipsnap wiki software (www.snipsnap.org), that shall update the pages.
      My question is now: What is the best practice to have this servlet called by the jbpm.

      My first idea is JMS+MDBs. Is it possible to configure jbpm, so that it sends messages to a topic as a publisher?
      Then I would try to write my first MDB, which then calls the wiki-servlet.

      Let me tell you the versions i am using.. I don't want to change these anymore as time is passing by ...

      JBoss 4.0.2 (from the starters-kis)
      jbpm 3.1.2 (from the starters-kis)

      Thanks for any comments on my idea,
      Gregor

          OK, i found this queue/JbpmQueue in the configuration of the jbpm-starters-kit:

          <mbean code="org.jboss.mq.server.jmx.Queue"
           name="jboss.mq.destination:service=Queue,name=JbpmQueue">
           <depends optional-attribute-name="DestinationManager">jboss.mq:service=DestinationManager</depends>
           </mbean>


          Its not a topic, as i was looking for, but a Queue -but who cares.

          I am a J2EE newbie, but looking at the

          MBean Name:
          Domain Name: jboss.mq.destination
          service: Queue
          name: JbpmQueue
          MBean Java Class: org.jboss.mq.server.jmx.Queue

          and invoking
          java.lang.String listMessageCounterHistory()
          shows me, that there have'nt been any messages posted while i was going through the jbpm-Getting-Started Toutorial.

          Should i have expected this, as a Queue (other than a Topic) needs message receivers to do anyting?

          When are what kind of messages send by jbpm to that queue?


          Thanks for any reply,
          Gregor

            Wrong forum, see post in other forum. Besides that. Do not use the jBPM queue for your own messages.
