Problem on Activiti CDI -

Question asked by humank on Oct 21, 2014
Hello guys,
        I want to integrate the activiti into a web project which runs in CDI environment. (tx is under JTA)
        According to the preceding threads , i get two ways to reach my goal.
        One is to customize the ProcessEngineLookup implementation , and add the appropriate folder stucture under META-INF to make the SPI service do work.The other one is to add the activiti.cfg.xml to the classpath , and then add on the spring dependencies. I have try out the two solutions but all failed.
        Below informations are my settings, please anybody kindly to help me to figure out what's wrong with me !!

System environment

1) weblogic 12.1.2
2) activiti-cdi 5.16.4
3) Spring-context 4.0.6.RELEASE

Exception information
org.activiti.engine.ActivitiException: Could not find an implementation of the org.activiti.cdi.spi.ProcessEngineLookup service returning a non-null processEngine. Giving up.

Solution 1 - Customzie ProcessEngineLookup imlementation

1)Folder structure
│   │       ├── beans.xml
│   │       ├── persistence.xml
│   │       └── services
│   │           └── org.activiti.cdi.spi.ProcessEngineLookup

2)the org.activiti.cdi.spi.ProcessEngineLookup file content

Solution 2 - add the activiti.cfg.xml


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<beans xmlns=""

  <bean id="transactionManager" class="org.springframework.jndi.JndiObjectFactoryBean">
    <property name="jndiName" value="weblogic.transaction.TransactionManager"></property>
    <property name="resourceRef" value="true" />

  <bean id="processEngineConfiguration" class="org.activiti.cdi.CdiJtaProcessEngineConfiguration">
    <property name="dataSourceJndiName" value="persistence/draw-center" />
    <property name="databaseType" value="oracle" />
    <property name="transactionManager" ref="transactionManager" />
    <property name="transactionsExternallyManaged" value="true" />
