Workflow expression compile error

Following code as in https://www.ptc.com/en/support/article?n=CS260605&source=Case%20Viewer

To set the state of a Change Notice's Resulting Objects in Windchill

 

I am on WC  11.1 M020-CPS03

using the following Code in expression Robot:

 

wt.lifecycle.State state = wt.lifecycle.State.toState("ISSUED");
wt.fc.QueryResult resulting = wt.change2.ChangeHelper2.service.getChangeablesAfter((wt.change2.ChangeOrderIfc) primaryBusinessObject);
while(resulting.hasMoreElements())
{
wt.fc.Persistable persistable = (wt.fc.Persistable) resulting.nextElement();

if (persistable instanceof wt.doc.WTDocument && !wt.vc.wip.WorkInProgressHelper.isCheckedOut((wt.vc.wip.Workable) persistable))
{
wt.lifecycle.LifeCycleHelper.service.setLifeCycleState((LifeCycleManaged)persistable, state);
}
}

 

Here is the error in Compile window >> Check Syntax

Re: Workflow expression compile error

Kindly ignore previous comment. I saw that you are doing it from workflow robot. If you are trying it from Workflow, use below code:

 

wt.lifecycle.State state = wt.lifecycle.State.toState("ISSUED");
wt.fc.QueryResult resulting = wt.change2.ChangeHelper2.service.getChangeablesAfter((wt.change2.ChangeOrderIfc) primaryBusinessObject);
while(resulting.hasMoreElements())
{
wt.fc.Persistable persistable = (wt.fc.Persistable) resulting.nextElement();

if (persistable instanceof wt.doc.WTDocument && !wt.vc.wip.WorkInProgressHelper.isCheckedOut((wt.vc.wip.Workable) persistable))
{
wt.lifecycle.LifeCycleHelper.service.setLifeCycleState((wt.lifecycle.LifeCycleManaged)persistable, state);
}
}

 

Copy it in notepad first and then Paste it in robot. it should work.

Re: Workflow expression compile error

Hi Rahul

 

What is the java version on the Windchill server? I have seen this error in the past where I had Java 1.7 which was not compatible with Windchill 11.1. You may need to check the same.

Hi Abhijeet,

Do you mean system JRE or windchill java home ?

Re: Workflow expression compile error

Hi Abhijeet,

I will definitely try that when I am back on server. I wonder if you can help in this expression.

This expression is basically for WTDocument, how should I make it more generic so that it should work for all resulting objects independent of object type like epm or wtpart too?

Looking forward for yours suggestions.

Thanks

Re: Workflow expression compile error

You can try:

 

Approach 1: Just removing Document type from condition considering CA resulting items allows only WTDocument, WTPart or EPMDocument types in your environment.

 

if (!wt.vc.wip.WorkInProgressHelper.isCheckedOut((wt.vc.wip.Workable) persistable))
{
Condition
}

 

Approach 2: Tweaking if condition to check if the resulting items is any of types WTDocument, WTPart or EPMDocument and not checked out.

 

if ((persistable instanceof wt.doc.WTDocument||persistable instanceof wt.epm.EPMDocument||persistable instanceof wt.part.WTPart) && !wt.vc.wip.WorkInProgressHelper.isCheckedOut((wt.vc.wip.Workable) persistable))

{

Condition...

}

 

Try it on test server and make the necessary changes...

Re: Workflow expression compile error

Hi Abhijeet,

 

this code works for all types of Object in Resulting table.

 

wt.lifecycle.State state = wt.lifecycle.State.toState("ISSUED");
wt.fc.QueryResult resulting = wt.change2.ChangeHelper2.service.getChangeablesAfter((wt.change2.ChangeOrderIfc) primaryBusinessObject);
while(resulting.hasMoreElements())
{
wt.fc.Persistable persistable = (wt.fc.Persistable) resulting.nextElement();

if (!wt.vc.wip.WorkInProgressHelper.isCheckedOut((wt.vc.wip.Workable) persistable))
{
wt.lifecycle.LifeCycleHelper.service.setLifeCycleState((wt.lifecycle.LifeCycleManaged)persistable, state);
}
}

 

Cheers

Rahul
