Download link for Windows - 32bit: Workflow RCP
The Workflow RCP is an application which enables the running of several business applications (let's say workflows). These workflows are included in the application and can be easily run via buttons placed on the main screen. All such workflows work generally in a transactional mode. The workflow is started, interactively executed and finally its result is stored somewhere (either a file or database). It means that no changes done while executing the workflow are permanent till the workflow is saved in the end of its execution. The Workflow RCP can be seen on the picture below.

This section is going to describe the general behaviour of the Workflow RCP and its main functionality.
Run the workflow application
Each workflow included in Workflow RCP is represented by its name and icon. The name together with the icon is displayed on a separate button. In order to run the workflow simply press the proper button.

General workflow application handling
Each business (workflow) application is split into several steps. In order to execute this business application, all its steps must be executed one by one till the application is finished. The navigation among these steps is enabled via navigation arrows in the bottom part of the Workflow RCP. These arrows are displayed on the picture below. You can either step front or back in order to change data, which has been already set.
Workflow Application Documentation: Navigation arrows
If the navigation arrows are not enabled, the navigation to another application step can be achieved via common application buttons. Common application buttons aimed at navigation are displayed on the picture below. As you can see the forward navigation arrow is not enabled that time.

In order to successfully terminate the business (workflow) application, the final step of the application must be achieved. As soon as this step is finished the following content will be displayed in the Workflow RCP window.
