Deploying custom workflow

Hello,

What file path do i exactly use for deploying my content model, my workflow, my properties files, and my deployment files?

Every time i try to create a jar file to put my files in tomcat/shared/lib it does not work.

For some reason the jar file only takes that MANIFEST file. Which is not right.

So i am looking for a way to put in each xml file individually so i do not have to use .jar.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please read the workflow tutorial

Please read the advanced workflow tutorial.

I have read it and the

I have read it and the HelloWorldUI is the same program im trying to get to work. Copied the code word for word and having trouble deploying it.

Then why are you using a JAR and shared/lib?

The tutorial is pretty clear about where to put files. It uses Maven to build an AMP. It says nothing about putting a JAR in shared/lib.

If you are choosing not to use Maven to package your files up as an AMP which you then install in the WAR, you can put your files in the expanded alfresco WAR, even though this is not recommended. As long as your workflow XML is somewhere on the classpath you will be able to load the workflows into Activiti via either the workflow console or a Spring bean.

Don't use shared/lib for anything.
