    How to deploy after Business Process Modelling?

    Amit Kayal Newbie

      Hi,

       

      I am quite new to the jBPM. I have tried to create BPMN diagram in eclipse jBPM plugin and able to use jUnitTest to test them. I am now trying the jBPM console in JBPM6 and have been able to create a business process diagram but not able to find out how to deploy the same and test it. I searched in JBoss document but could not find out any such document. My intention is to use the jBPM Console for business process diagram and then deploy the same..Is there any guide/blog for this?

       

      Thanks

      Amit

          once you created process, then you go to Project Editor (in Authoring perspective -> Tools -> Project Editor) where you have button build and deploy, once you invoke it the complete build of the project will be executed and if successful it will be deployed to runtime for execution.

            Hello Maciej, is the normal procedure to use the Eclipse BPMN tooling to do the modeling before deploying it into the JBoss BPM Suite 6. I have been struggling with which approach to take in the last few days and starting from either side have issues:

             

            If I start directly from JBoss BPM Suite web authoring, I found it has quite a bit of usability problems, for example, if I have some errors on the process diagram, I may not be able to open the editor again.

             

            If I start from Eclipse jbpm, I cannot find some of the equivalent functions like Web Service or Rest call etc from the palette. Also form seems to be missing.

             

            I am also new to JBoss BPM but is familiar with other enterprise BPM suites so I am really quite confused how to do iterative development here. Seems a little buggy, but maybe I am missing something obvious.

             

            Thanks for your help... I am currently doing evaluation to see if we should move to JBoss BPM. Hope to hear from you soon.

              that is completely valid approach, eclipse is mainly used when there is a need for actual development work as part of the process (or more generally project) design. Once you're done with development work you can push the work back to business-central/kie-wb for further work such as forms, simulation etc. Once you have all done you can build and deploy your work into the execution server.

              make sure that you validate your process before you save/close it, in case validation does not report errors and then process is corrupted please file a jira/support case so it gets fixed. In case the process got corrupted and cannot be opened again you can do following:

              • go to administration perspective and try to revert recent changes
              • clone your repository over git and fix the problem and push it back

              these can be simply imported by placing the wid file that contains the work item definitions that will be done automatically when you work on a project taken from business central. When it comes to forms it's only available in business central/kie-wb
