MIGRATION TO NEW IMIXS WORKFLOW JEE API

If you migrate form the ix-workflow project to the new imixs-workflow project it is not posible to redeploy with the new JEE Implementation into an existing EJB / EAR module.

So I recommand to follwo these steps:

  1.   backup the entities form you exsiting Imixs Worklfow Application with the new (!) org.imixs.workflow.jee.adminclient.web 1.4.3 using the Export Feature.
  2. Take care about the new persistence unit used in the persistence.xml
    org.imixs.workflow.jee.jpa
  3. Redeploy you new project with the persistence.xml option:
    <property name=”toplink.ddl-generation”
    value=”drop-and-create-tables” />
  4. Reimport you backupfile with the new imixs WOrkflow AdminClient Tool

NEW! IMIXS WORKFLOW PROJECT

I am proud to announce that we started the new Open Source Workflow Project Imixs-Workflow on dev.java.net. This project arise from the ix-workflow project we developed about for more than 3 years. But the new project is much more easy to use. We developed a bunch of simplifications in the Workflow API so the hole project is now much easier to integreate. I would be happy if you can give me some feedback to that project on the project home page.

I will provide a short video next time to show how easy it is building workflow applications based on the API.
