Hi All,
I have some native or external tools in my data process pipeline. I want to develope a web application and use jBPM5 to call these tools (they are command line tools on linux written in Perl, Shell and other scripts). Is there any easy way to call them? I do not like the idea to call them directly in the Java code. Currently, I use Apache Ant build file to call them sequentially, because Ant has a wonderful exec task to call external tools. Is there any available solution? Or I have to call them directly or via Ant API in the Java code?
