Hi, Thanks for the article, its very good and helpful, please could you let me know how to call workflow from OA Page
written by Anil Passi , August 10, 2007
Hi Suresh,
Although there is a class in java named WFEngineAPI.java which has a method named launchProcess. However there isn't much documentation on that class.

Hence I suggest a quick and easy approach:-
1. From Controller call a method in AM
2. Inside AM, get handle to jdbc, and use CallableStatement to kickoff pl/sql API to begin workflow.
