I have setup up Drools 5 with jbpm 5. I am trying to create an automation tool for regression testing. I could use simple shell scripting for that but would like to try to integrate the jbpm process flow to dictate the tool. I was wondering if anybody has any ideas on how I can get started on this using jbpm. I have created a simple workflow on the graphical editor, but am trying to see how to incorporate the tool. Do I need to encode the shell script through java commands under the task's actions? I would prefer not to do this since it would seem redundant to run the shell script in jbpm. Please advise!
