Running the latest stable release of the Imixs JEE Workflow components (imixs-workflow-jee-impl-2.0.1) on a Oracle database can lead into a situation where users did not find any entities or can process new workitems.
The reason for this issue is a query optimizer used in one of the core EJBs. The Problem did not occur on MySQL Database Pools but on Oracle Database Pools.
To fix this problem please use on oracle based workflow systems the following hot fix release:
This patch is available in the subversion repository in /branches. Please let us know if you have any problems. The bug will be fixed in upcoming new 2.0.2 release. Please see also details at Issue Tracker Issue #55.
In the upcoming new release 2.0.2 the Imixs JEE Workflow provides – among other things a new Web Service implementation which will become much more flexible. Now as the Imixs XML API is fully based on JAXB the SOAP Web Services and the REST Web Services are separated into web modules. This makes is much more easy to use these interfaces in workflow projects as the deployment strategy has changed. As announced the new release will run on JEE5 (Glassfish 2.1) as also under JEE6 (Glassfish 3). And also the deplyoment becomes more flexible as you are now no longer forced to deploy all web service modules together with your application.
The project documentation will be extended in the near future with an additional section for XML & Web Services.
