This response addresses questions about the ODMA Workflow Standard and the present status of Workflow Support for ODMA.
This FAQtip describes the basic Workflow Approach. Links for downloading the ODMA Workflow 1.0 specification and the ODMA Workflow 1.0 software are also included.
Acknowledge John Newton's persistence in having a Workflow Companion.
Indicate the parallel-connection-manager approach adopted for ODMA Workflow 1.0
Indicate that software was produced and the SDK is available, but tested only with ODMA 1.0 libraries as far as we know.
Download the ODMA Workflow 1.0 Specification:
Download the ODMA Workflow 1.0 SDK:
- Installation Instructions for Workflow 1.0 SDK: Windows Text File
(1,412 bytes). This information is not incorporated in the SDK.
- Version 1.0.0 SDK: Windows Zip File odmawf.zip (153,783 bytes)
- The Zip archive contains a directory tree for all of the Workflow software, including DLLs for the Workflow connection managers.
- After downloading
odmawf.zip, follow the instructions in
readmewf.txtto preserve the directory structure.
- When you want to operate the ODMA 1.0 Workflow Managers, edit the
.regfiles as instructed and then operate them (by double-clicking).
- There are only binary modules (DLL-s) for the ODMA 1.0 Workflow Managers (16-bit and 32-bit). The whereabouts of the source code is not known.
- Additional subdirectories carry libraries, implementations of a sample client and sample workflow engine, source code for the samples, and the ODMA Workflow 1.0 specification.
Include references to Workflow Management Coalition (WfMC) specifications.
Include references to WfMC demonstrations with ODMA and DMA, and the use of an ActiveX shim for operation from WfMC to document repositories.
