Hi all,

i'd like to create my own javascript webscript which could give ownership of a pooled task to a specific user. Simple idea isn't it?
But i'm looking for a few days, and i'm a bit lost with tracks i found.


* the following line doesn't work
workflow.getTaskById(PooledTaskid).properties["cm:owner"] = "admin";
Is it really the property "owner" which i've to update?

* How can i use the method "setProperties" if it really exists in the workflow api?
What about method "setPooled" in the workflow api? Do you have any exemples of how i can use it?

these posts use a java backed webscript which seems to work, but i search a solution with javascript api cause i suck in java…

Any ideas?

And if i'm REALLY obliged to use java, i work on alfresco 3.4e and there's just a sdk for 3.4d, will i be in troubles?
One solution could be to create a java backed webscript which makes what i want and a seconde solution is perhaps like in this french post (http://blog.starxpert.fr/?p=255) to extend the javascript api with my own class.
I don't know which class i've to extend and how to use code of the post http://forums.alfresco.com/en/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=23648
Map<QName, Serializable> params = new HashMap<QName, Serializable>();
params.put(ContentModel.PROP_OWNER, owner);
WorkflowTask updatedTask = workflowService.updateTask(taskId, params, null, null);  
Moreover, since 2009 the code could have change, isn't it?

Any help would be very appreciated!
