Hi there,

In the company I work for, we are interested in using Activiti, but we don't really know where to start reading to design a proper solution for our environment. Particularly, we don't know what would be the best way to deploy the Activiti Engine.

We have some JEE projects running in GlassFish servers. The EJB ones contains stateless sessions beans, that are using content managed transactions (CMT) and JPA. We are thinking that we should continue using those EJBs, and should control the workflows from there.

Having that in mind, what do you think is the best solution for us?. Should we have the Activiti Engine in a totally independent server? Or could it be deployed in GlassFish?. Should we consider using an embedded engine in our EJBs? Or connecting to an external one?. Sorry about all those questions, but we have been searching in the documentation, and we could not find how exactly the engine can be deployed.

Thanks very much,
