Flowable BPM turned into a workflow manager with features such as file transfer via FTP and Samba, integration with Amazon Web Service, file transcodification and analysis using FFmpeg and MediaInfo, and more..
In this article, I will explain one possible method to solved some “limitations” encountered during the integration and implementation of Flowable BPM, when executing long-running tasks, by implementing the Signallable Flowable Behavior and a database table as a task queue. Similar behavior can be achieved using Flowable’s send task and receive task instead of Signallable Flowable Behavior. However, this solution is not limited to be used together with Flowable. Due to its design, it can be used in conjunction with other applications that required executing long-running tasks asynchronically.
