my name is Philipp Kanis and I study at the university Trier Germany. For my diploma thesis i need some informations about jBPM / JBoss.I dont know whether this is here the right place for my questions. So i hope anyone can help me.
What i want to know is about the modelling of process respectively workflows in jBPM.
Does the modelling part of JBPM support a data- or documentflow? I mean, can i integrate documents (.pdf, .doc…) in a workflow respectivelyin a workflowtask?
If the answer is yes, there are following questions i want to ask:
Which documenttypes are supported to integrate into a workflow?
Is it possible to upload documents in a main storage like a repository?
Are there access authorisations for these documents?
Is it possible to manage the metadata form these documents?
How is the visual presentation of these documents in a workflow? A seperate flow or just like a small add-on to a workflowtask?
I hope my english is not so bad and anybody can help me.
