The client project entailed creating a reminder/alerting service using Intalio as the business rules service. If a timer expires before an updated message comes in to the process, emails are to be sent out to staff and manager. In the email, they wanted the capability of checking a box and replying to the email which would end the Intalio Process for monitoring that case if monitoring was no longer required. So this is what I put together for them using Intalio and Orbeon.
When the email is sent, I format the body of the email using Intalio bpel:doXSLTransform function and in the xsl include HTML and values from the process. As part of the html email I include a link which is formatted to call an Orbeon XPL file - a RESTful service. In the url is the location of the service and the necessary parameters. An example of the url format is below:
So, all this does is call the xpl file location which does the following.
- First we use an xsl processor to take the parameters from the url and put them in the pattern required by the delegation processor.
- The output of the xsl processor is passed to the input for the call of the delegation processor. The delegation processor is configured to call Intalio Web Service.
- Intalio receives the message and responds back with the results, which in the case is just that the message was received.
- An xsl processor takes the result from the delegation processor and displays that result in the users browser.
Thinking outside the box, Orbeon components were used without displaying one single xForms to add functionality to our process.
