about processes and engines

night train

I’ve been busy writing some ActiveRecord oriented code : openwferu-densha, for persisting workitems via ActiveRecord, something to build a Rails / ActiveRecord based worklist.

On the JRuby front, I’m a bit stuck, seems like OpenWFEru 0.9.12 won’t run 100% on JRuby. Patience, JRuby is getting better day after day.

I started working last week on performance improvements for the workflow engine, Nicolas took the relay and achieved dramatic improvements via simple means in just one day, Ruby 1.8.6 (Nicolas) is definitely more performant than Ruby 1.8.5 (John).

Stay tuned.

  1. This looks very enticing!

    I am trying to figure out a way that I can set my app up so that scheduled tasks are triggered by callbacks. (ie. publishing a product results in promo mails getting sent out a week later)

    Is this something that would be within the scope of your project?
