Task form XML and screenshots.

Yavuz, from mobile computing team is building an iPhone application, which process stakeholders can use to complete tasks in their workflow. The application uses the RESTFUL APIs to pull task data from the task server.

Currently when the iPhone app queries the task server, to lookup task information for a particular user (e.g. Mary, HR the first stakeholder in the HR hiring process) we get the below XML.

But we do not get any information about the form fields {Candidate Name, Age, E-Mail, Score}, type {Text field, drop down field}  and it’s data {Shankar, 25, spalakodeti@gmail.com, 5-Excellent}. We would need this data to be exposed by the REST api’s for the iPhone app to dynamically generate the process form for different processes.

Following screenshots are attached for reference.

1) query_mary.xml: XML returned for user(mary) when queried for tasks in task server.
2) HR_Hiring_Process: Business process for HR Hiring.
3) HR_Interview_Form: Task form that mary fills to complete its task.

In order to get this information from the current services the BPMN2DataServices needs to be exposed via REST

Fixed, but not set to modified because I do not know what the target milestone is. 

Content jaxb serialization implementation commit: 

TaskResource REST operations commit: 

There has been some further discussion about the issue, in particular with regards to making the accesibility of the (serialized) content more accesible for clients that should not need to deserialize the content byte []. This operation may evolve further.

Hi Marco,

Can you please provide us the documentation for the fix.
As of now we are using this documentation to access the RESTFUL APIs


and use the methods described in this to do the required actions.

E.g. To list the tasks for a potential owner:

Per comment 3, this is ready for pickup.
