Voice-over Screencast to Demonstrate the Simple API for Workflow (SAW) Plug-in

The SAW feature in OpenPortal is intended to offer a generic workflow API, to perform human workflow interaction with various workflow engines. This generic workflow API will ship with a default implementation for Java Composite Application Platform Suite. Currently, the Workflow API, Workflow Tag Library, Sample portlets, and Tooling Plugins for developer IDE's are provided in the SAW home page.

In this screencast, you will learn how to:

  1. Perform human workflow interaction with Java Composite Application Platform Suite workflow engine
  2. Add SAW plug-in in NetBeans IDE,
  3. Create a simple web application using the drag and drop features in SAW plug-in 
  4. Create a simple a simple SAW portlet, which lists tasks based on task ID

SAW is Ready

SAW Is AvailableAs indicated in one of the previous blog entries, the SAW API and its implementation for Sun Java CAPS is now available for download here.
Lot of exhaustive material viz. Understanding SAW, SAW User Guide, Java Docs of the API and its implementation for Sun Java CAPS are provided. Please go through them and let us know your feedback to users@saw.dev.java.net. Do check out this blog for more details
There are many more things viz. Out of the box task management portlet, Netbeans Tooling to develop workflow portlets on their way. Do explore, join SAW and help us enrich it.
Please feel free to contact us at users@saw.dev.java.net and we would be happy to answer any question regarding SAW.

Welcome new contributor to SAW

PyramidsThe recently launched SAW (Simple API for Workflow) project seems to be attracting lot of interest and momentum.

I would like to welcome Hisham Galal, to SAW as a non-Sun contributor. Hisham, who hails from the beautiful country of pyramids Egypt, is currently working for an Information Technology company. He is currently working in the area of workflow.

Quoting Hisham about his inclination towards SAW -- "I am interested in SAW because in my work I saw a lot of requests on workflows from the customers but most of the systems have their own implementation of designing workflows and I found your project will be very helpful in that."

SAW is LIVE!

 SAW-Logo

SAW an abbreviation for Simple API for Workflow, is LIVE! Check it out here.
SAW is an open source effort towards making a generic workflow API scalable across multiple workflow engines. The default implementation will be supported with the Sun Java Composite Application Platform Suite.


For details, read my blog here. Stay tuned on announce@saw.dev.java.net for further announcements.

Developing Workflow Portlets with Netbeans Plugin

In my previous blogs, I referred to my article on how to incorporate workflow into portals with Java CAPS. The article used portlets as a mechanism to interact with the user. However, it did assume that the end user has a knowledge of how to use the Java CAPS APIs.

Here is a netbeans plugin developed for writing workflow portlets. This plugin not only demonstrates the ease of coding workflow portlets but also uses an extensible API for performing workflow.

Check out the Netbeans plugin for Developing Workflow Portlets

 Hope this makes life easier for portlet developers to integrate complex workflow applications in their portals.

Incorporating Workflow Into Sun Portals With Sun Java Composite Application Platform Suite

Java CAPSTraditionally, performing tasks on multiple portals is tedious and inefficient as enterprises adopt back-end business processes and must then continually manage them. Hence, demand has steadily mounted for the capability to perform tasks on just the portal itself instead of on multiple sites with a single-point solution; that is, a solution that not only handles the process interactions but also enables end users to seamlessly perform tasks as "hooks" in the process.

Through an example, this article describes how to automate human workflow by integrating Portal Server with Java CAPS.

Check out the article -- Workflow into Sun Portals with Java CAPS.
