Hello everybody,

have to implement a workflow GUI, and something similar (but easier) that
some of the stp tools. I have no idea how to start, and I'm trying to
understand if GMF + RCP are the right tools to be used. This GUI has to
receive a list
of activities (I suppose modeled with EMF?) from a server, let the user to
compose the WF graphically (I suppose here is GMF) and then when he hits
the RUN button submit the workflow. Now I've been reading several
tutorials, but I miss how I will be able to parse the model and call the
rights methodos.
If this is the WF:

INPUT->A->OUTPUT

is it possible with EMF to associate to the INPUT model, the class to the
class INPUT in the workflow framework? Something like

make_INPUT()
make_OUTPUT()
make_A()
link(INPUT,A)
link(A,OUTPUT)

Sorry for the long mail, and for posting a non STP related question, but
I'm really new to this kind of problems, and I have to start asap.
Thanks

Nicola

Sorry Nicola, but as you put it this is not a STP related question.
Actually I don't think we can help you much for now.

Try getting more experience over EMF, and maybe have a look at jBPM, it
might be doing what you are trying to achieve (I never used it though,
so this is a blind advice :))


Thanks,

Antoine

Hello,

Nicola, feel free to take a look at JWT project, that is aimed to
provide a set of tools for workflow manipulation.
