Description Jiri Locker 2012-01-20 10:51:40 EST
Description of problem:
This is committed in ERD, but still the jBPM Console is hardcoded to connect to MinaTaskServer only.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Actual results:
It is not possible to configure jBPM Console to connect to a custom WS-HT service. That requires two steps:
1) registering a custom WorkItemHandler for Human Task work items, that would submit the tasks to a custom HT service
2) configuring the console's TaskManagement to connect to the custom WS-HT service to expose the tasks to human interaction

Expected results:

I believe PR-13 is related to the ability to integrate your own human task service (should this be available) with jBPM, rather than using the one provided out-of-the-box.  The runtime engine allows this by registering a custom work item handler.

The jBPM console is also built for being able to plug in your own integration code.  This however is not something that can be configured or done without additional development of integration code.  This would require the implementation of a new ManagementFactory (like the on in the jbpm-gwt-core module, org.jbpm.integration.console.ManagementFactory) that would integrate and delegate to the right task service.  This management factory could then be registered and invoked by the jbpm-console instead.
