Hi all,

I'm trying to integrate Activiti within an application through API calls. I have been spending time looking around the source code of Activiti to figure out the right entry point to this exercise. I have a few question that I'd appreciate an answer to. First, here's what I'm trying to do:

1. Configure the process engine programmatically
2. instantiate a ProcessEngine instance
3. Deploy a ProcessDefinition
4. Start a process instance
5. Query in-progress process instances of a particular process definition
6. Query the state of in-progress process instance
7. Associate an object (web form that has nothing to do with Activiti forms) with a task
8. Associate the task with a roles and users in LDAP store (active directory)
9. trigger an action in an exclusive gateway on a task

I managed to do 1 - 4

I'm struggling with 5-9. I'd appreciate pointers and maybe code examples of how to go about accessing the execution entities to perform those actions from the process engine.

Thanks,

Hany Mesha
