Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 982775
Pop-up for elements outside jBPM runtime in BPMN2 process
Last modified: 2015-12-10 10:29:16 EST
If we try to import a BPMN2 process created in other BPM suites like Bizagi, Intalio, SoftwareAG, that contain elements not supported by our jBPM runtime, we are able to open it in Eclipse JBDS however it does not open in JBoss business central a.k.a. Web-designer.
Currently, Eclipse JBDS supports the entire BPMN2 specification for the ‘process modeling conformance’ and, support a sub-set of the complete specification for ‘process execution conformance’ as defined by our jBPM runtime. Hence Eclipse JBDS is able to view the model although not execute it outside the jBPM stencil set.
Web-designer on the other hand, is not able to open the business process if it has elements outside the jBPM stencil set. Currently it throws an exception in the server.log file indicating that the element is not supported by jBPM runtime.
If a user tries to open a BPMN2 business process created in other proprietary BPM suites, he should get a pop-up message in case the process contains elements outside the jBPM stencil set.
The pop-up should list the elements in the process being loaded, that are not currently supported by jBPM runtime. This would help the user to identify which elements our product (JBoss) does not support currently in a more visual and user appealing way, than going through the raw logs.
This bugzilla is solved by this issue (partially):
Tiho - I wonder whether we should close this with "Won't Fix", as it's quite old, and I imagine we won't be fixing it.
Jeremy I agree. closing.
