    jBPM 3.3 GA feedback in the user forum

    Ronald van Kuijk Master

      Guys,

      There is some feedback coming in in the user forum regarding jBPM 3.3 GA. Basically it focuses around the installer and to some extend related to the docs. Some remarks:
      - The 3.3 release is not in line with the getting started docs.
      - People expect to be able to use jBPM out of the box when the installer has run.
      - - Database correctly configured
      - - Database populated
      - How to install on a headless server

      The first item is already in Jira as Thomas reopened https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBPM-1727.

      Regarding the database, I tend to agree with the users. It is not really visible in any warning or doc (at least not that I found). This could be partly solved by the previous item, but in my opinion, we should provide a screen in the installer that asks for username, password and e.g. database url and preconfigure that and populate the database (as is the case with HSQLDB, but not done via sql scripts

      An option for a headless install is another one. The fact that the automatic install script can be used for this with e.g. just changing the install path in the generated file and how to use it should be documented.

      I'll make Jira issues of these in the weekend, but thought I'd initially share them here.

      Stay tuned for (hopefully not) more
