Hot deploying workflow on Alfresco

Jump to solution

Hey,

I developped a share module allowing users to design and configure a workflow diagram. The users generate then the xml files of the workflows. Now i want to hot deploying the workflow and run it in Alfresco share from my module without restarting Alfresco.

Is there a way to achieve this?

I looked for a solution, and i found that alfresco Java Api contains some class to manage the workflows definitions, but i don't know if i can resolve my issue with this.

My question is: Is there a way to hot deploying a workflow from my share module, by developping a java backed script?

If you have an example to how use Alfresco java api classes to hot deploy workflows, it'll be very helpful for me.

Regards.

N.M

Hi nabil malloul!

Alfresco Share can deploy workflows: you can read clearly about this in this article: Dynamic Models 

I think, you will solve your problem if you'll write a script which:

  1. will save xml diagram which your module has generated into Company Home -> Data Dictionary -> Models;
  2. will set  'Model Active' property = true.

 

I hope it will help!

Thank you for your reply.

It's exactly what i done. For the content model, i created webscript that copy the xml file in models and set its 'Model Active' property to true.

For the workflow hot deploying i used the Alfresco java api classes to hot deploy the workflow definition xml file.

Your solution resolve the issue i posted
