Associating a task to an external URL

I am trying to figure out if it is possible to use Activiti or Alfresco Process Servicesin a particular way where:

  • One or more task of the process opens a form in our Web Application by invoking a URL and passing some input parameters.
  • The process engine understands if the step has been completed based on output parameters or on the call to a Web Service to know the state of the process instance.

So to summarise, is it possible to associate a task to an external URL to open a form produced by our web application?

Could you please help where to start? or provide some resources?

Many Thanks

Re: Associating a task to an external URL

Yes it can be done, but that's part of your application logic. 

You will need to map a task id to your external link which you will need to generate. 

Does that make sense?
