Quotation Neumann, Gustaf. 2008. XoWiki Content Flow -- From a Wiki to a Simple Workflow System. 7th OpenACS / .LRN conference, Valencia, Spanien, 18.11-19.11.




This paper introduces XoWiki Content Flow, which is a simple workflow component based on a state transition system. This workflow component is used as an extension of the XoWiki framework [1, 2], a wiki based environment for content management applications. The primary application focus is on managing state and transitions of content together with an application specific set of attributes. A user can define with the system different kind of application objects (such as shared online documents, or multiple choice questions and answers) that behave differently depending on their state. Technically, the content flow package is defined as a sub-package of XoWiki and inherits all its functionality of XoWiki. The paper focuses on the the basic principles and design criteria of the package and will present a simple application example.
