I am able to create task manually and by running the process only. Is there any other ways (by sending email ,scanning Documents and fax ) to create task in alfresco activiti enterprise edition?
<snip>Also what are the other means of introduction of the cases/tasks in the process created in activiti like scanning, sharepoint, Fax, JMS, Java apis etc?
This is the purpose of message start events where integrations may initiate a process instance. However, it is also possible using intermediate message catch events for external systems to participate in a process that may already be running.
One of my favorite tools for integrating external systems (such as email) is the Camel integration framework.Camel has a large number of endpoints that talk to different devices filesystems, databases and repositories that can trigger a process or interact with an existing process. The following Developer series blog post describes how to setup Camel in Activiti Enterprise (the approach is a little easier in Community Edition).
Using the Camel task to invoke a Camel route
Probably need more detail, tasks are tied to a process definition but can also be created "ad hoc" as sub tasks.
There are many ways a process may route to a task including email receipt, document scan, data enrichment, message receipt and data CRUD.
Do you have a specific scenario you are interested in?
Thanks for the quick response.
To add my question, I know that to create one new task/case I can start the process and one new process instance id will be created to the new task/case.I need to know that what are the other "mode of introductions" to introduce the cases in activiti.
For eg:-I send the mail(outlook mail) to one mail id which should be configured and mapped to one process in activiti. When i send the mail(including mail body) to the mail id, one new task/case initiate and some of the fields auto-populate in the form attached to the process(start activity). How can I achieve this ?.
Also what are the other means of introduction of the cases/tasks in the process created in activiti like scanning, sharepoint, Fax, JMS, Java apis etc?
Thanks in advance. Waiting for your reply..
for your valuable response.
