Deploying a custom workitemhandler into demo

Dan Daugherty Newbie

I'm trying to wrap my head around the process for developing integrations with jbpm and I can't seem to find a way to associate a java class with the wid file without having to bootstrap the jbpm engine and add the reference using a ksession.getWorkItemManager().registerWorkItemHandler("SetAttribute", new SetAttributeComponent()); call.

Is there a way for me to deploy the process I have with the custom workitemhandler to the repository, add the jar to the classpath and make the association without having to manually start the process in code?

    Hi Dan


    You could try using a drools.session.conf file, in which you put something like this:

    drools.workItemHandlers = CustomWorkItemHandlers.conf


    Then in CustomWorkItemHandlers.conf you put in entries:


              "Task1": new com.xyz.TaskHandler1(),

              "Task2": new com.xyz.TaskHandler2()



    jBPM picks up these definitions and adds them itself without having to do so programatically.
