This section will explain the installation steps needed to successfully upload a workflow model to the Imixs JSF Sample Application.
Before you run the example you need to upload a workflow model into your Imixs Workflow server. The model can be managed with the Imixs Workflow Modeler from the Eclipse IDE. You can install this Plugin into your Eclipse IDE with the following Update URL:
The Sample Application contains a valid model file of a "Trouble Ticket Workflow System". A ticket is the "workitem" managed by your application which contains all necessary informations about the reported customer issue. In this example scenario the workflow is very simple to demonstrate the principle and basic concepts of the Imixs Workflow:
You can download the Workflow Model form the Imixs Download center. Just import this model file (ticket.ixm) in a project of your Eclipse Workspace. Then the ixm-File can be opened with the Imixs Workflow Modeler Plugin from the Eclipse IDE.
You can synchronize the model file with your server using the Imixs Workflow Editor. After you opened the ixm-model file, switch to the 'Overview' section:
Click the "upload model" link to start the upload of the model file to the Workflow Server. You need to authenticate against the Workflow Server Instance with the user account member within the IMIXS-WORKFLOW-Manager group.
You can edit and extend the process model using the different features of the Imixs Modeler. After you have setup the model you can run the application.
