I'm trying to create a work item: it seems the only way to implement a web service connection (I still don't know how to do it!). As it's described in this post: http://community.jboss.org/thread/161306 , I've created a new jBPM Project and a new "META-INF" folder in "/usr/local/jBPM/jbpm-installer/workspace/WSCustomer/src/main/resource/" ("/usr/local/jBPM/" is jBPM's installation folder, "WSCustomer" is jBPM project's name). Is this the right place?
In this folder I've put 2 files:
- "MyWorkDefinition.conf" (MyWorkDefinition is my work item's name) that contains:
"name" : "Notification",
"parameters" : [
"Message" : new StringDataType(),
"From" : new StringDataType(),
"To" : new StringDataType(),
"Priority" : new StringDataType(),
"displayName" : "Notification",
"icon" : "icons/notification.gif"
2. "drools.rulebase.conf" that contains:
drools.workDefinitions = MyWorkDefinitions.conf
But as I try to load eclipse bpmn editor, it returns "Could not parse work definitions MyWorkDefinitions.conf:null" error.
Can someone help me, please?!
The problem is the name of file. Try drools.workDefinitions = MyWorkDefinition.conf
Thanks a lot fabian!
It was a wrong name problem as you told. Before it started working, I had to refresh the project, despite I tryed to restart eclipse IDE! But now I have my "Notification" new work item. But now I've lost "log" and "Email" Service Task (those I had before I added the new one). I think it depends by "drools.rulebase.conf" file that declares only MyWorkDefinition.conf....
Anyway, can someone tell me how to construct a web service connection work item (the remote WS wants a SOAP request through an https secure connection)?
You could use http://axis.apache.org/axis/. You can see the samples: samples\misc\TestClient.java. This code should be implements into WorkItemHandler (see http://docs.jboss.org/jbpm/v5.1/userguide/ch13.html#d0e3599)
