Clarification is needed for the section on translation in section 7.5.8 (page 216) referring to transaction SE63.

The simple parts of the workflow such as the step names are translated using the menu function extras->translation.

The descriptions and work item texts are translated using transaction se63

The transport entries required are:
  • R3TR PDWS for workflows
  • R3TR PDTS for tasks.

To translate the relevant task, enter its number (without WS or TS).

Dear readers,
Just to let you know that Jocelyn has started a series on using ABAP OO objects in workflow (and the advantages thereof). At the time we wrote the book this was not possible. But now....

Hope you find this useful,

On page 197 in the English version and page 234 of the German version we incorrectly state that the binding goes from the task to the workflow and back again in the description of activity steps (table 7.1) .

It should read:
Execution of a task or subworkflow. At runtime, data is passed from the workflow container to the task or subworkflow on creation
of the matching work item, and vice versa on work item completion.

Thank you Prof.Rainer Weber and Tobias Krügel for pointing this out.

MIT has changed the workflow forum from a listserver to listman. This means that the registration process changed after the book was published.

Not really a true addendum, more in the way of a qualifying description of what appears on the book's jacket.

Not an addendum but an update vis-a-vis Release 6.20.
This release offers many new features including BPML and customer exits in the work item handling.
If you build your own ABAP OO objects you should not use the include <cntn01>. Instead you should include the macro in your class's local-type definition and use the macro <cntn03> in your class's local-type implementation.
