Hi All,

I am facing problem in starting workflow programmatically on an avmnode. following is the scenario.
1) creating files in stagging sandbox with the help of AVMService.
2) creating a separate translation store and copy the same file to it.
3) creating an action to submit the file to the workflow.
4) finally execute the action.
i tried it with two ways first one is creating an action to execute javascript, but it is not executing,
and second one is i created an action to start a workflow for this it is giving exception invalid node ref and node does not exist

org.alfresco.service.cmr.repository.InvalidNodeRefException: Node does not exist: avm://Sports–Translation–en–28e37284-ab0a-11dd-b87a-4d5e6d1f30ed/-1;www;avm_webapps;ROOT;English;2008;8;25spo0005.08082501355.xml
