Understandng the callable object within GP

Hi All,

I have basic question on callable objects in GP.

I would like to know how the Adobe form content gets persisted with in GP .

Example : We have 4 steps in a GP process , one requestor and two approvers. Each step is a webDynpro callable object.

Requestor fills a Adobe form and this request goes through two approvers and then to complete state.

Consider we have two fields in adobe form. For my understanding , we need to take care of the business logic within the webDynpro callable object which takes care of storing the two field data into a database(Maxdb or SQl).Is that correct ? Or GP will take care of storing the content also ?

2. Another scenario

Assume that the application context stored with in GP process

The system restarted/down after the requestor submits his request. In that case will that request gets lost or GP will take care of storing......???

Please correct me if my understanding is not correct.

Regards, Anil

    Hi Anil,

    Regarding your first doubt the whole business logic need to be implimented into web dynpro application.The data from the adobe form will be saved into web dypro context and then into GP context once web dynpro application is included in GP as callable object.

    2. Once the process is initiated,the whole data will be saved in GP context. The data will only be deleted from GP context when the whole process instance is complete.

    or you can also design a adobe form using adobe life cycle designer and include it as callable object of type Composite form in GP.

    Hope this helps you.

    Thanks and regards,

      Hi Sumangala,

      Thanks for your response.

      Lets consider I have 2 webDynpro callable objects..One is for requestor another for approver.

      Requestor filled the adobe form in callableobject1 and submitted the request.For some reason j2ee got restarted or went down.

      When requestor submits his request , GP will send the notification to the approver.So a task will be added to approver inbox.

      So GP will take care of storing the process related information but not the content within Adobe or webDynpro application ...Am I right ??

      I am just trying to analyze the overall behaviour of GP in all aspects.

      Thanks, Anil
