Tempo Logo

September 19, 2008 5 comments

Our Ode friends, have had a really nice and expressive logo on their own for quite some times now, and we were starting to feel jealous.

In tempo, we’re dealing with people, tasks presentation, tasks orchestration, dynamic assignment re-assignment, plug-able components, and the list goes on and on… so we figured out we could find something visual to better match those ideas.

Here’s a really cool list of the ones proposed so far.

We want to get it one rolling before the end of next week. 

Let us know which one you like, maybe you can even propose one of your own !

Liferay, Alfresco, LDAP, CAS and me (update 2)

September 9, 2008 1 comment

After a good amount of feedback on the last integration post, decided to push this a little more, and make something more in the details.

Here’s what we got on the integration side:

Here’s what we’ve done on the tempo side:
  • Merged UI-FW (task list) into one single war file. (We had one for portlet, and one for standard webapp)
  • Single sign-on through CAS for both the standalone UI-FW and the portlet version, this was asked, and this is pretty sweet. This will be the base to integrate the other intalio webapps into the mix, in a not-so-distant future, BAM and Admin Console. 
  • Atom Feeds are now part of UI-FW as well, thus reducing the total download size by about 70megs!
The installation instructions would be the same as last time, namely, download,  run the mysql scripts, and start tomcat.
Don’t hesitate to post on the Tempo mailing list for questions !
Thanks !

Liferay, Alfresco, LDAP, CAS and me

September 1, 2008 18 comments

For those of us who have enough bandwidth for feeding mammoth, here is a short entry on how to install a beautiful bunch of java powerful apps in less that 5 minutes.

Here, let’s start by downloading, the latest and greatest liferay-tempo-tomcat bundle.

Then we need to create two mysql databases, both with user root and no password (for the sake of security) on a standard mysql server: bpms, and liferay.

Once this is done, we can import the two following files, bpms.sql and liferay.sql in their respective database.

Start liferay in less than 2 minutes, and then head out to your local liferay page:

Once you see the logo, Enterprise Open Source for Life, for which you need a nice sponsorship, you can log in by clicking on the top right “Sign In” button under “Welcome!”.

CAS is accessible through https/ssl, so that would force you to accept the certificate we are using for localhost.


This should redirect you to the local CAS server page.

Then you can use any credential that has been stored in LDAP, (see the previous post), we will use admin/changeit for the sake of simplicity. On a first login, you would have to approve the liferay term of use.

Once you have logged in, you can add the tempo and alfresco portlets, using the add applications in the top corner of  a personal liferay page.

Then select the Tempo portlet from the list:

Then the alfresco client:

This should give something like, (you need a 24″ monitor to see it, but try it and click on the link !):

Note that full Alfresco integration with intalio is only available in the Intalio EE, but this preview can help you quick-start your development.
