I'm just getting started with jBPM and I'm trying to get my development environment as correct/current as possible so I can follow all the tutorials and build my first few projects.
I've installed jBPM5 using the full installer and I've run "ant install.demo". I don't see any errors during this step. When I launch using "ant start.demo", jboss will run and I can connect. Eclipse launches and can create a new jBPM project. I can run the sample.java and it produces "hello world' in the eclipse console as expected.
I can also open sample.bpmn and I can edit this grapically using the list of components etc.
What I cannot seem to do is find the jBPM perspective. The tutorials indicate it should be under "window | open perspective | other " but I do not have that listed. What component am I missing? During install.demo I do see:
[unzip] Expanding: /Users/gary/Desktop/jbpm-installer/lib/jbpm-5.0.0-eclipse-all.zip into /Users/gary/Desktop/jbpm-installer/eclipse
so I thought that was all I needed (again there were no errors during the installation). I'm installing on a Mac running 10.6.
