Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite - Online Workshop Building a Rewards Demo (Lab 18 Automate Task Reassignment)

We are back with this a new episode in the continuing JBoss Business Rules Management System (BRMS) & Business Process Management (BPM) Suite online workshop series.

In this workshop we will be introducing you to the possibilities that abound for your business when leveraging these two new and exciting products.

Each week we will push out the next installment of this workshop that will lead you through building an employee rewards approval application, leveraging a business process with human tasks.

This project will be available as a completed project called the Rewards Demo, but we thought it would be interesting to help you build this human resource application from scratch.

The last lab we ran our completed rewards project and examined the BAM dashboard reporting.

Automate task reassignment.
This week we will take a closer look at the user task after our users complained that the Approve Reward task was being claimed by members of the Manager group, but not being completed in a timely manner (due to illness, lazy or whatever reason). We will look at how to correct this by setting a period of time that a user is allowed to claim a task. When this time expires the task will automatically be put back into the group for other users to claim and complete.

The weeks following will feed you a new set of exercises to help you to the next stage of development as you watch your very own BPM project march towards completion.

All of the workshop materials will be hosted online with the help of OpenShift, so all you need is a browser to follow along.

You do not need to be a Java developer, as this workshop focuses on only the online product web dashboard experience as an analyst would interact with the product. The only technical deviation from this will be the initial installation of the product, but we have detailed instructions and it is a three step process that should not take you more than a few minutes.

So what are you waiting for?
