This page is intended to provide a guide to quickly start using the Workflow2

Getting Started

To start using the Workflow2, do the following:

Then, at the top of your file, select the following:

# workflow engine factory
workflow.engine.factory = org.apache.oodt.cas.workflow.engine.PrioritizedQueueBasedWorkflowEngineFactory

# engine runner factory

Remember for your packaged workflow repo to set:

# wengine-style packaged workflow repo properties
org.apache.oodt.cas.workflow.wengine.packagedRepo.dir.path = /path/to/wengine/workflow/files

And to define your wengine lifecycle:
