Hi,
We are trying to implement work flow in one of our existing applications and I'm trying to explore the different possibilities or solutions using activiti. We are planning to create a generic work flow with 2 tasks - one to receive an object with field name and values and user task to provide the approval. (I have attached the process file)
1. User A submits changes in external application
2. Application kicks off a new work flow instance
3. A change request form is automatically generated and the object is sent to workflow engine
4. Workflow engine sends the task to the approver assigned to the user task
5. User B looks up tasks assigned and should be able to browse and view the object data
6. User B approves the change in external application
7. external application sends approval action to workflow engine
8. Workflow engine executes a web service to persist data in actual database

example of object - <InfoObject><field name=“name” id=”name”>Arun</field><field name=“department” id=“23”>Information tech</field>
</InfoObject>

can you please provide pointers or suggestions on implementing these use cases. Thanks in advance!

Thanks,
Arun
