AdHoc Processes

Thinking about how to make OpenWFE support processes that change all the time.

just a hint on how to do it with OpenWFE :

    <loop>
        <eval field="__process__"/>
    </loop>

Let’s imagine our user Alice wants that its current workitem goes to Bob and then comes back to her.
She could set the field “__process__” to

   <sequence>
      <participant ref="bob" />
      <participant ref="alice" />
   <sequence>

It’s just a hint… Processes don’t have to be static all the way (nor fully dynamic).

Next time, I should talk about how to track such ad-hoc flows and eventually turn some of the recurrent ones into classical processes.
