Just a quick update on BlackPoint. Currently you can download it from http://portal.k2workflow.com if you purchased it or if you are a K2 partner….
InfoPath forms services is widely discussed product, you either love it or hate it. You mostly hate it because you would want more from the product then you can get, you’re then simply running into the boundaries of InfoPath. IMHO this is a limitation of working with out of the box products. K2 BlackPearl is able to integrate really well with InfoPath and is able to use InfoPath Forms Server so you don’t need the full client on all the client machines.
So, as you all might know 807 has been released (Jippy!) Apart from some startup problems i’m very happy with this release, the performance is very good and i really enjoy opening and editing workflow on my slow VMware session :) I really notice the performance upgrade, it really works very well so try it out ASAP :) You can read all/more about it at other K2 insiders’ blogposts: Ramble On Johnny’s K2 Blog K2 and Moss Collaboration Distillery (On the bet As you might know, we use program to create a MSBuild package, that MSBuildpackage is run on the TFS buildserver.
In our current project, we are using Tean Foundation Server to automate our build process. This also means MSI’s are created for every artifact to deploy, eventually using TFS’s functionality to deploy a new msi when the build quality is changed. MSI’s are build in a way so they can be installed from command line without user actions required (unattended installation). So, when we change the build quality of a build it can fully automatically be deployed to a testing environment.
So, this is the first time that I’m blogging about a K2 problem I’ve had for a while… At work we have a nice mail and registration process and with the new K2 BlackPearl we’d like to be able to design the process with “nice” InfoPath forms (since they are easy to create). K2 BlackPearl has some great integration with InfoPath, SharePoint and SmartObjects. The Mail and Registration process is quite simple.
Yesterday was the first day in berlin. The flight (the day before yesterday) was short and dark. The landing was rather weird because it was cloudy and the pilot sad there was a freezing drizzle. So people looked at each other like ‘how are we going to brake?’. The wheels touched the ground and the pilot slammed the brakes, everything went as normal :) The airport was small but nice, then in a taxi to the hotel, checked in and had a drink with my collegues.
