NAME ^

Workflow::Wfmc - A lightweight Workflow Engine in PERL based on XPDL 2.0

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Workflow::Wfmc;

DESCRIPTION ^

This is an partial implementation of XML Process Definition Language (XPDL) Version 2 (see Web page of Workflow Management Coalition - http://www.wfmc.org). It supports input and output parameters for a workflow, routing, call-back functions and conditions. It does not support sub-processes and exceptions at the moment. You can run 'perl t/Workflow-Wfmc.t -t "PO"' or 'perl t/Workflow-Wfmc.t -t "Credit"' to see how it works. The workflow configuration file "workflow.xml" can be created with some visual tools (e.g., SAP Workflow Editor). The sample package "Workflow::Wfmc::Test::Order" contains dummy call-back functions. As a matter of fact, the executable program itself could be generated from the workflow configuration file, which is something that the author would like to complete in a successive release. To test it, you should prepare your workflow configuration file and the packages that contain call-back functions first and then generate an executable program following the example of t/Workflow-Wfmc.t.

EXPORT

None by default.
