Workflow: Absence Request process sample on windows

Today, using the following .ldif file for ApacheDS, we will use a users/roles hierarchy looking like this:

The required MySQL/SQL files are now included in the zip file. After setting up the database, on windows, expand the preview bundle of tempo, and then you can start the server just by double clicking on start.bat, and soon after, LDAP, Alfresco, Liferay, Ode, CAS and Tempo will be initialized.

You will still be asked to login into CAS:

The tempo UI-FW porlet uses the proxy CAS method, which means the portlet gets a proxy ticket and a service ticket from the portlet request to access authenticated backend services. CAS proxy portlet authentication is explained on the CAS wiki.

Liferay needs you to agree to its license for each and every user. That means that for running the Absence Request, you will have to go through the “I Agree” button for each user the first time.

Once you’ve added the UI-FW application from the liferay “add application” menu, you would see:

Clicking on the example process opens the form in a pop up. This demo is using Orbeon’s XForms:

Users who would like to contribute to a simple JQuery form manager please stand up !  It is very easy to integrate with Tempo, and this would give the project a light alternative to Intalio Enterprise’s integration with General Interface

When you start the Absence Request process, (you need to be logged with the Sales role to be able to see it), and fill the form, a user with the Manager role will need to approve it. 

Once the absence request has received approval it will show up as a notification in the Tasks/Notification tab.

Note that with this preview release, you’re now single-signed on in UI-FW webapp as well. So you can switch between whichever version you like.

Once you’ve finished your session, you can log out of the system, and CAS ensures that your session is being closed for all the different services.

Voila !

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for your comment.
    Intalio is already proposing services on Amazon EC2:

    Right now, although I would love to see this happening for Tempo as well, AFAIK, this is not on the roadmap.
    Did you have any specific requirements ?

    It would be great to have the bundle downloadable as a virtual appliance

    Intalio,CAS and Liferay work greate.
    But Alfresco didn’t start neither in Windows nor in MacOS.
    Exceptions like here http://groups.google.com/group/tempo-dev/browse_thread/thread/ab03d9b1dfaba8cb/07b14ef4249de776?lnk=gst&q=webscript-framework#07b14ef4249de776
