Is it possible to "embed" the new V6 UI?

Jump to solution

Hi,

  We're long time users of Activiti and have built a substantial app around an embedded use of the Activiti engine.  Users build workflows using the Eclipse Designer extended by our custom tasks (really just helpers for the JavaDelegates).

Question #1: Could we "embed" the V6 UI?

In our web front end, would be very slick to have an "edit" button that spins up the V6 UI, edits and saves the workflows, and add a button to the editor to "deploy".  Currently users edit in Eclipse and manually upload to our webapp and we deploy into Activiti.

Question #2: Is there / will there be an extension mechanism like the Eclipse based editor?

We find the shortcuts created in Eclipse very handy.

Thanks!

Daniel,

The Activiti Application is licensed under the Apache 2.0 license (here's the Apache License Wiki page, which summarizes a bit); because of this, any or all of the application code may be used without consequence (or warranty) - in whatever embedding efforts you wish to pursue. The code will be available just as it has been in past versions, and from that point you'll be able to build it out, or build around it however you wish.

And to your second question, there doesn't seem to be any official indication the support will be going away. The docs included with the V6 beta still reference the Eclipse plug-in, and it seems like there is enough support for it that they'll probably keep it going. An Activiti person may hopefully weigh in on your second question for an official answer Smiley Happy

Hope this helps,

JEarles,

  Thanks for the help.  I have not looked at the UI code, but like all things Activiti, I'm sure it's well written and will be easy to incorporate into our application.

  If an Activiti dev does comment, will the V6 web UI be extensible like the Eclipse plug-in?  Hope so, it's super useful.

Thanks,
