Can you tell me how can you run the jBPM5 in standalone mode? There is a documentation for this?
I am interested to for this topic.
We have gone through the same requirment, we also couldn't rely on the rest API
Our solution was to wrap the core engine as an EAR and provide a facade which wraps all the methods for accessing/managing session ,process instances , tasks and history service (db logs ) . Then we are providing a webservice interface to this facade, so that this is accessible to external applications.
Hope this bit of information is helpful.
Thanks for the reply. Was jBPM persistence enabled in your application? I wanted an approach in which the jBPM persistence is disabled and i wanted to fetch the all the running process related information.
Yes the persistence is enabled as I need the process related information across the stop and start of the application .
Are you planning to access the engine via an application server . If yes I think the above approach is plausible. But without persistence , I wonder how can this work in a production environment.
