about processes and engines


quickstart gaussian blurI’ve written a new quickstart for OpenWFEru.

In one file, it shows a minimum of OpenWFEru : enumerating the participants in an organization (by registering them in the workflow engine), establishing a process definition and launching it (via a LaunchItem).

The participants demonstrated are simple block participants, very easily understandable by Ruby developers.

The process is just launched once, that doesn’t do much justice to the process execution engine which is meant to track more than one of those.

Persistency is not demonstrated within this quickstart example. If you need a further example using a persistent engine and persistent participants, have a look at Mano’s tracker.

I’ll soon expand that quickstart page with details about what is going in this openwferu.rb source file.

Feedback is welcome on the users mailing list.
