Screencast: Getting Started with Activiti 5.0.alpha2

Activiti 5.0.alpha2 just has been released!

Key feature of this release is the taskform functionality, many thanks to Erik Winlof for implementing them! Nothing could give it more credit than a screencast.

In this screencast, you”ll be able to enjoy:

  • Setting up the Activiti environment using the demo setup script. As you’ll see, only 27 seconds are needed. That’s about the time it takes to pour a cup of coffee (if you’re fast).
  • The Activiti Probe, REST, Modeler and Explorer webapps.
  • The new taskform functionality. In the screencast, the vacation request BPMN 2.0 example is used. Check out our userguide to learn everything about taskforms and the example process.

Don’t forget to put on your speakers and to check the movie out in fullscreen!

    really cool 🙂 I also like the answer of the manager, I think we can actually automate this process by giving this answer automatically. And then we can actually save expenses by getting rid of the manager, which I don’t know whether I like it or not 🙂
