Subject [jira] [Commented] (OODT-484) Enhance Workflow Lifecycle to include state change logic
Date Sun, 12 Aug 2012 21:42:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OODT-484?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13432844#comment-13432844

Sheryl John commented on OODT-484:

So these lifecycle XML files would have default States and Stages for a workflow that a user
can reuse for every workflow, right? A user would need to only edit these files if he/she
wants to add or delete states/stages or to change priorities and mappings. 
Would there be a lifecycle at workflow Id level? If yes, then I'll have to edit all lifecycle
files instead of one for every workflow defined. Did I understand this right?

>             Project: OODT
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: workflow manager
>    Affects Versions: 0.4
>         Environment: none
>            Reporter: Brian Foster
>            Assignee: Brian Foster
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 0.5
> Let's split up the lifecycle XML file into several files (kind have it look like filemgr
element and product-type XML files):
>   1) Define States XML file
>   2) Define Stages XML file
>   3) Mapping of States to Stages XML file
>   4) Mapping of States to next valid States
> I then propose we add a Priority to each Stage (its purpose will become apparent)...
Then we create a new Interface: StatePreCondition... These preconditions would then be attached
to a State... Then when the Workflow Processor detects a sub-processor State change it would
poll each next valid State (determined by mapping in purposed XML file #4) for their PreConditions
and if any of the State's PreConditions pass then that State would become the next State of
that Workflow Processor (if multiple States pass as next State, then the priority attached
to the Stage each State belongs to is used to determine which State becomes next State)
