Using Activiti Bare bones Style

Question asked by largesnike on Feb 6, 2013

I would like to use Activiti for its workflow engine in a very light-weight manner.

I would rather not run the entire environment on a Tomcat server, rather I would like to define the
workflows in xml, retaining these as source, define my workflow delegates, and have Maven
    1. compile the code,
    2. build a bar, and
    3. set up a Jetty container and run the environment in Jetty.
Most of the documentation seems to assume that I want to run the whole environment, including the UI
for publishing worflows etc. Ultimately, I would probably like to use a rest webservice to gain
access to the workflows so that a user can approve (or whatever) a step.

But basically, I don't need that whole environment.

Are there any guides to using Activiti in such a bare-bones manner? Or can anyone suggest a recipe for doing this?
