We are using the Eclipse designer to build workflows. We are stuck on the older version as the new one released with 5.3.x doesn't seem to work for us...
We spend a lot of time debugging script tasks and gateways, as we just get an exception such as could not build knowledge base, and no detail, when the script task is compiled.
Is there an easy way we can copy code and compile it ourselves, spitting out some decent compile errors? At the moment we do a bit of coding, try to run a workflow locally, and then backtrack/comment out until we find our typos, which is a bit hit and miss.
We are OK with our service tasks, as we build in enough validation that they give us a good error when we misconfigure one.
