  2. Joram,

    Make sure you don't block all parking spaces in belgium with your experiments. To be on the safe side, I'll take the bike next few days :-)

    regards, tom.

  3. Quick question. Does the new schema work with DB2 and Sybase schema limitations?

  4. We currently have the following QA matrix:

    jdk{5,6} x jboss{5.0.0,5.0.1} x db{hsqldb,mysql,oracle,postgresql}

    i assume you are behind our vpn: http://hudson.qa.jboss.com/hudson/job/jbpm4-jboss/

    Sybase and db2 are not part of this QA.

  5. Quick Question: Will jbpm 4.x be tested/supported only against jbpm 5.x and not jbpm 4.x?

  7. deploiying jbpm as a service archive on jboss 4 is not a priortity. this way of deploying includes publishing of the ProcessEngine in JNDI.

    this doesn't mean that jbpm will not run on jboss 4. it only means that you're on your own to sort out which libraries to put where. (as you had to do for jbpm 3 anyway)

  9. When I create a new jpdl diagram using the GPD the name space it creates 'http://jbpm.org/4/jpdl' causes some trouble during deployment: see http://swissdev.blogspot.com/2009/05/jbpm-startup-problem-no-start-activity.html

    should I report a bug or is my eclipse configuration wrong?

    By the way, will GPD run on Eclipse 3.5 soon?

  10. Hi Tom,

    Now our company want to use jbpm as our workflow management. jbpm is a great workflow management.

    One question, is there any RCP aplication for jpdl designer?

    Thanks,

  11. Ali, there is no RCP version of the designer. If all goes well, might be including a web based editor soon. That might cover those kind of needs as well.

  13. Hi Tom,

    I tried deploying beta2 in tomcat, have resolved all the classpath dependency,but the GWT console uses PorcessEngine from JNDI(Jboss Context), is it possible to deploy ProcessEngine in Tomcat server, are there any documentations available for deploying JBPM4 console in tomcat?

  16. Hi,

    I'm trying to migrate from 3 to 4 and most of the time the time is being spent on whats the new class in 4 to use! I feel documentation needs to be improved.

  18. Hi,

    Is there any way to setup jbpm 4.0.0 on tomcat ? It seems that jbpm no more supports tomcat.

    Thanks

  19. Hi Vikas,

    Tomcat support is in the works.

    We already offer as much as we did before: a set of libs that you can just deploy on tomcat.

    Only the web app needs to be customized a bit. That will happen in one of the next releases.

    But we target more then what we had with jbpm 3: in jBPM 4 we aim for an automatic tomcat installation script similar to the jboss installation script that we already have.

  20. Hi Tom,

    Thanks for quick response.I am evaluating JBPM for our Organization.Can you provide me some docs for deploying JBPM4 on Tomcat ? When you are planning to release the stable release for JBPM4 ? We are planning to use it for our organization.So we will prefer to use the stable release.

    Thanks

  21. I don't have simple instructions to deploy jbpm on tomcat. For now, you just have to add the jbpm libs and the hibernate libs and other dependent libs to the tomcat lib folder. And add your configuration files in a jar in that tomcatlib folder i guess.

    Stable release is planned for July 1st.
