    Human task editor, example

    Matthew Young Newbie

      Trying to setup JBPM in Eclipse without using the installer....


      Wanted to rig the JBPM/Drools tools without using the installer (too heavy for my tastes, wanted to be able to suck necessary jars via Ivy rather than having a JBRM RUNTIME among other things).  Using Indigo Eclipse.  Pulled down the Drools/JBPM tools from:



      And did a local site with Eclipse adding the following (5.3.1.Final):

          JBoss Drools Core

          JBoss Drools Guvnor

          JBoss Drools Task

          JBoss jBPM Core

          JBoss jBPM Taks


      Already had BPMN2 Editor (0.0.1) and the BPMN2 Project Feature (0.7.0) along with Graphiti/Graphitit SDK 0.8.1.


      Setup a normal Java project and pulled in the ProcessTest class and the Evaluation.bpmn files from the JBPM-Installer samples.  Used the following in Ivy:



                          <dependency org="org.jbpm" name="jbpm-bpmn2" rev="5.2.0.Final" conf="runtime->runtime, master"/>

        <dependency org="org.jbpm" name="jbpm-human-task" rev="5.2.0.Final" conf="runtime->runtime,master"/>

        <dependency org="com.h2database" name="h2" rev="1.3.161" conf="runtime->master"/>

        <dependency org="org.slf4j" name="slf4j-api" rev="1.6.0" conf="runtime->master" />

        <dependency org="org.slf4j" name="slf4j-log4j12" rev="1.6.0" conf="runtime->master" />

        <dependency org="log4j" name="log4j" rev="1.2.16" conf="runtime->master" />

        <dependency org="org.drools" name="drools-core" rev="5.3.1.Final" conf="runtime->master"/>



      With grabs a bunch of stuff that I fill funnel down later.  Anyways.....when I run the ProcessTest it is suppost to register a Human task (on address 127.0,0.1 and the default port 9123).  But the underlying NIO connector fails when starting the process:

           java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Could not connect task client

              at org.jbpm.process.workitem.wsht.WSHumanTaskHandler.connect(WSHumanTaskHandler.java:76)


      Why?  No idea.  Log4j logging gives nothing.  Wondering if I am missing a jar (the h2 is there)?


      This is my first time using Drools/JBPM.  The ProcessTest.java basically setups up a KnowledgeBase and loads the Evaluation.bpmn from the classpath (no problems there).  A session is created from the knowledge base.  The Human Task (new WSHumanTaskHandler) is registered.  A couple of parameters are registered when starting the "com.smaple.evaluation" process.  That's it.


      Another thing is that I don't have a Human Task Editor for bpmn files?  Am I missing a feature/plugin?


      Thanks in advance / Matthew
