jBPM5 tooling support for service nodes

Per request of our jBPM community here is a video that shows how to configure service nodes (work items) in both the jBPM5 Eclipse, and the web-based editors.

In the video we use tooling installed via the jBPM 5.1.0.Final installer that is available for download on sourceforge.

  1. Many thx for your very nice screencast!
    Only one question: Which designer do you use?
    (I don't have a 'Service Tasks' entry. JBoss is updated... but it's still missing.)

  2. This video uses the latest released designer version 1.0.0.054 which you can grab at http://sourceforge.net/projects/jbpm/files/designer/

  3. Hi Tihomir,
    many thx for your answer.
    I use designer version 1.0.0.054 to, but I don't have a 'Service Tasks' entry.
    What I have done:
    -install using jbpm-5.1.0.Final-installer-full.zip
    -in drools-guvnor the entry 'New Work Item Definition' is missing, so i update to drools guvnor 5.3.0.Beta.
    -now I can create a Work Item Definition using drools-guvnor
    -create a new process, but no 'Service Tasks' section available
    -installed designer.war replaced with designer version 1.0.0.054 manually. Still no 'Service Tasks' available.

    Any hints?

    Many thx,
    Regards,
    Peter

  6. Hi Peter, with your Guvnor and designer version this should work fine. I suspect your workitem definitions cannot be parsed, do you see any errors in the server logs? Paste your wid and I will test it out. Sorry you are running into issues.

    1. Hi,
      I have the same question.
      How do you configure the implementation of the new work item.

      Thanks,
      Gabriel
