Right, installation is nearly as simple:
1) import following modules:
bearingpoint commons (
bearingpoint commons springmanager (
bearingpoint workflow2 (
2) set your database URL/user/password for workflow related things (--> see
attached readme.txt), if the target database doesn't exist you have to
3) add some context menu entries to your "opencms-workplace.xml" or replace
with the provided one (--> see attached readme.txt)
4) restart your tomcat / OpenCms server
all framework libraries as Spring, Hibernate and so on are included.
