I'm new to this and I found this project today. Not sure if this is possible but I would like to extend the Workflow Editor to store certain information associated to the process definition in Oracle tables.

I'm only interested in using the WE for this purpose (not any workflow engine).

Thanks.

Hi Alan

First, a warm welcome to the JWT forum.


Being able to model custom business or techical information in workflows
one of the goals of JWT's flexibility.

Have a look at JWT's aspect-like metamodel extension mechanism :
http://wiki.eclipse.org/JWT_Metamodel_Extension

Or on the slides we showed about it at Eclipse Summit last Autumn at
http://www.slideshare.net/mdutoo/eclipse-summit-2009-aspect- oriented-modeling

It provides various ways of doing it, including a simple, no-code one
involving builtin all-around properties :
http://wiki.eclipse.org/JWT_Metamodel_Extension#Setting_up_s imple_.28key-value.29_additional_model_extensions
As exemplified on the CVS at org.eclipse.jwt/we/jwt-we-plugins in
jwt-we-conf-property-model/samples .

That should get you runnning.


And if you like what you see but want more, you'll be able to also
really model (in your custom EMF metamodel) your metamodel aspect-like
extension, but also to develop entirely custom views for it thanks to
the new views mechanism !

One final word : I advise you to ask your further questions on the JWT
mailing list at jwt-dev@eclipse.org , as the JWT team monitors it more
closely.

Best regards,
