Is there any decent Spring support for versions of jBPM 3 higher than 3.1 ?
I read a good tutorial on the use of Spring Module classes such as JBPMTemplate, JBPMCallback, etc but I'm now hearing reports that later versions of jBPM 3 are not compatible.
Correct, some things work, but not everything (hence my 'no' on the 'decent' suppport. otoh, decent could be read as 'good enough' in that case you could give it a try and accept the things that do not work or where you have to create workarounds.
Does anyone know if there are plans to address this incompatibility
Yes I do know that
either by Spring or JBoss ?
No there won't be. All effort by JBoss went into spring support for jBPM 4. Supprt for 3 was done by external people and under the Spring umbrella. for 4 JBoss wanted to be in control.
I used jBPM 3.2.2 with spring module, sometime in 2007. So it works. But if there is decent supprt? I second what Ronald says - 'decent' is not the word for that support. I have extened that class and changed to make that less 'indecent' which worked for me.
