I've downloaded and installed the 6.0.0 Activiti version.
Following the tutorial, I found myself faced with some problem.
So, I have to ask:
supposing all issues I've encountered are Activiti 6.0.0 bugs, does Alfresco plan to fix them?
or, is Activiti "6.0.0" abandoned / no longer supported?
is Activiti "6.0.0" suitable for production use, or it is just for experimenting?
If you want to go deep with things that caused me problems, you can read the details below.
---- DETAILS ----
FORMS: MISSING WIDGETS
The tutorial uses the "Display Value" and the "Display Text" for some form.
But I can't found them.
Probably this is because the tutorial is about the "6.0.0 beta 2", instead of "6.0.0" I'm using.
Anyway, I guess that both widgets have been replaced by the "Expression" widget (is this correct?).
As you can see at 16:56, a specific id is assigned to the "Display Text" form field: sadly, "Override id?" and "id" elements are not available for the "Expression" widget.
So, if the "Expression" widget has replaced the "Display Value" and the "Display Text", how to specify the "id" when it is required?
FORMS: "PEOPLE" WIDGET REQUIRED FIELD
Back to the tutorial, at 8:31 a "People" widget is added to the form "demande de double correction" as the field "Enseignant Responsable" (direct link to 8:31 https://youtu.be/V1wrew-YgfA?t=511 ).
The field is flagged as "Required".
Jumping to 28:09 you can see how the user fills up the required field. When I start the process and try to do the same, it works exactly in the same way.
When I click "Start process" an error bar is displayed preventing the process to proceed. To discover where is the problem, I' had to watch at Tomcat localhost.*.log logfile, and this is what I've found:
26-Jun-2019 16:09:10.231 SEVERE [http-nio-6060-exec-1] org.apache.catalina.core.StandardWrapperValve.invoke Servlet.service() for servlet [appDispatcher] in context with path [/activiti-app] threw exception [Request processing failed; nested exception is org.activiti.form.engine.ActivitiFormValidationException: Form field enseignantresponsable is required, but no value was found] with root cause org.activiti.form.engine.ActivitiFormValidationException: Form field enseignantresponsable is required, but no value was found [...]
It says that "field enseignantresponsable is required, but no value was found", yet the field is filled up.
Does the version "6.0.0" Actviti's "People" widget affected by some bug?
CREATE APP AND CUSTOMIZATION
At 26:05 (direct link https://youtu.be/V1wrew-YgfA?t=1565 ) an App is created, and the person who creates it chose to use a different icon (which depict a "highway" instead of the "asterisk").
