Red Hat Training

A Red Hat training course is available for JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform

7.6. Configuring the JBPM

The configuration settings for the JBoss Business Process Manager are stored in three files within the SOA_ROOT/jboss-as/server/PROFILE/deploy/jbpm.esb/ directory:
  • jbpm.cfg.xml
  • hibernate.cfg.xml
  • jbpm.mail.templates.xml
  1. The jbpm.cfg.xml file is set to tell the JBPM to use the JTA Transaction Manager:
    <service name="persistence">
          <factory>
            <bean class="org.jbpm.persistence.jta.JtaDbPersistenceServiceFactory">
              <property name="isTransactionEnabled"><false/></property>
              <property name="isCurrentSessionEnabled"><true/></property>
              <!--property name="sessionFactoryJndiName">
                <string value="java:/myHibSessFactJndiName" />
              </property-->
            </bean>
         </factory>
         </service>
    
  2. The hibernate.cfg.xml file also tells the JBPM use the JTA Transaction Manager:
        <!-- JTA transaction properties (begin) -->
        <property name="jta.UserTransaction">UserTransaction</property>
        <property name="hibernate.current_session_context_class">jta</property>
        <property name="hibernate.transaction.factory_class">org.hibernate.transaction.JTATransactionFactory</property>
        <property name="hibernate.transaction.manager_lookup_class">org.hibernate.transaction.JBossTransactionManagerLookup</property>
        <!-- JTA transaction properties (end) -->
    
    

    Note

    Do not use Hibernate to create the database schema. Use the DatabaseInitializer MBean instead.
  3. The jbpm.mail.templates.xml file contains the following:
            jboss-as ]$ cat server/default/deploy/jbpm.esb/jbpm.mail.templates.xml 
    
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <mail-templates>
      <variable name="taskListBaseURL" value="http://localhost:8080/jbpm-console/app/task.jsf?id=" />
    
      <mail-template name='task-assign'>
        <actors>${taskInstance.actorId}</actors>
        <subject>Task notification: ${taskInstance.name}</subject>
        <text><![CDATA[Hi ${taskInstance.actorId},
    Task '${taskInstance.name}' has been assigned to you.
    Go for it: ${taskListBaseURL}${taskInstance.id}
    
    Sent by jBPM]]></text>
      </mail-template>
    
      <mail-template name='task-reminder'>
        <actors>${taskInstance.actorId}</actors>
        <subject>Task reminder: ${taskInstance.name}</subject>
        <text><![CDATA[Hey ${taskInstance.actorId},
    Do not forget about task '${taskInstance.name}'.
    Get going: ${taskListBaseURL}${taskInstance.id}
    
    Sent by jBPM]]></text>
      </mail-template>
    </mail-templates>
