2010-09-02 00:57:32 utc dhf Let's say you have an array or hash in your work item that created over several process steps. then in one process step you need to iterate over it. I assume you could do it within an iteration using count, but is there a way to call an each on a variable or field? the actual participant knows how to handle one of the items.
2010-09-02 00:57:40 utc jmettraux hello
2010-09-02 00:58:10 utc jmettraux process step = ?
2010-09-02 00:58:31 utc dhf participant
2010-09-02 00:59:01 utc jmettraux workitem.fields['list'].each { |elt| p(elt) }
2010-09-02 01:00:46 utc dhf various participants as defined in the process are adding to the work item depend on the actual flow. Can you do it as a parameter to the call of the participant like you can fit an iteration using ;count?
2010-09-02 01:01:19 utc jmettraux I don't get the question
2010-09-02 01:01:50 utc jmettraux yes, you can pass parameters to participants
2010-09-02 01:02:50 utc dhf concurrent_iterator :on => array.each type of call
2010-09-02 01:03:11 utc dhf or anyother iterator
2010-09-02 01:03:56 utc jmettraux concurrent_iterator expects a list
2010-09-02 01:05:04 utc dhf or iterator :on_val => array.each, :to_var -> 'v'
2010-09-02 01:05:48 utc jmettraux iterator :on_field => 'list'
2010-09-02 01:06:09 utc jmettraux I will enhance the documentation
2010-09-02 01:06:48 utc jmettraux ruby would choke on "array.each"
2010-09-02 01:07:12 utc dhf I was using array as a variable name
2010-09-02 01:08:14 utc jmettraux remember that the process definition builds a process tree (AST)
2010-09-02 01:08:26 utc jmettraux it doesn't eval the ruby code at process runtime
2010-09-02 01:17:07 utc jmettraux dhf: I have added a "classical case" to
2010-09-02 02:11:45 utc dhf my problem is in the process by the time it gets all the data collected from the previous participants, the the number of actual elements is not known othere than by the length of the array/hash. That is why I wanted the each. I gues I could keep a field of the count after each participant does its thing. then use it as a count variable.
2010-09-02 02:13:54 utc jmettraux ${r:wi.fields['list'].length}
2010-09-02 02:14:50 utc jmettraux seriously, I have trouble helping you, you're never giving the higher level context
2010-09-02 02:15:15 utc jmettraux iterating over elements != getting the count of elements
2010-09-02 02:15:24 utc jmettraux your questions are all mixed
2010-09-02 02:23:43 utc jmettraux lol, why care, it's free
2010-09-02 02:27:30 utc dhf sorry. there are a set of participants that process a clinical report pulling different sets of information from the report. each participant pulls different physician information and adds it to an array. different process are used on different reports. THe end participant needs to handle the final processing of the information list of physicians and their associated data. I know I can have the participant just handle all of it as one consume, but I
2010-09-02 02:27:31 utc dhf not want to as future will require different participants depending upon other information. I want the process to call the particiapnt for each physician
2010-09-02 02:28:08 utc jmettraux iterator will do just fine
2010-09-02 02:29:04 utc jmettraux iterator :on_field => 'physicians, :to_field => 'physician'
2010-09-02 10:20:04 utc jmettraux tosch_le: welcome back !
2010-09-02 10:20:28 utc tosch_le thanks and hello!
2010-09-02 10:20:39 utc jmettraux hello
