Adding new form property types

Question asked by rainerv on Jan 20, 2011

How would it be possible to easily implement new form property types?

Currently, Activiti uses following property types: string (StringFormType), long (LongFormType),
enum (EnumFormType) and date (DateFormType). Would it be possible to add new custom property types without changing Activiti source code? If not then could it be a feature in a future release?

For example, I have to use form properties for uploading and managing files and for that I would need to define a new property type for handling files so my user interface would be able to render those form properties as upload/download buttons instead of regular input fields. What would be the most reasonable way of achieving that?

Thank you
