Workflow

According to Wikipedia, "A workflow consists of a sequence of connected steps. It is a depiction of a sequence of operations, declared as work of a person, a group of persons, an organization of staff, or one or more simple or complex mechanisms"

The workflow system in Liferay 6 allows the users to create and publish content in a step by step way.

Liferay 6 provides a workflow integration mechanism that allows the portal to be integrated with workflow engines like JBPM (the de-facto java standard for workflows), and provides a custom developed workflow engine for those who doesn't want to install one: this is the Kaleo Workflow Engine.

The workflow is applied out-of-the-box to the following Liferay entities:

  1. Wiki Page
  2. Web Content
  3. Document Library Document
  4. Blogs Entry
  5. Comments
  6. Message Boards Message

And it can be implemented in more entities, even custom developed entities.

There are four portlets related to the workflow that allows the users manage this system.

Worflow related portlets:

  1. My Submissions
  2. My Workflow Tasks
  3. Workflow Configuration
  4. Workflow Portlet

Hello All....

I am using liferay version 6.1.1 CA GA2. I installed and used Kaleo workflow in liferay.
Kaleo provides just accept - reject states.

Now my requirement is like that i have to provide three state
1) Accept
2) Reject
3) Revise or Resubmit

So.. What i have to do??
Many friends suggests me to use JBPM.. I am very new in liferay.. I have no idea that what is JBPM.. but yes... if some one can direct me properly then i can do further.


Please Help me regarding this..
Thankssssssssssss in Advanceeeeeeeeeeee,,,,,,,,,,,

Hi Pradeep, you can add custom statuses to kalep workflow.
1.Just apply ext on WorkflowConstatns.java file and add custom status there.
public static final int STATUS_REVISE=11;
public static final String LABEL_REVISE="revise";
2. update the code in toStatus() and toLabel() methods.
3. just access the custom status in workflow to update.
4. you again need to update the label name Language.properties file.
5. now you can see the custom status in table that updated to value 11.
