How can Google Documents and Google Drive be integrated with IBM BPM? It would appear that these are places where documents can be attached and managed. Do they have a CMIS interface? Are there APIs to edit Google Documents within a Coach? etc etc - 2014-09

Consider a Coach View widget that has no visuals but instead performs an Ajax call to retrieve data. This could then set its binding data which would then be picked up by another widget such as the the GridX Coach View.
Create a launcher for Process Designer that uses a list of Process Centers
How do we dynamically set the timer of a BPD activity? How can it subsequently be changed?

Imagine I add a field to a BO and then migrate an in flight process... what if I remove one?
There is a REST Performance API … what is that all about?
Imagine a process has failed … it is in the failed stated. Is there any way I can make it alive again?

In this thread (https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=417448&tstart=0) there is discussion on returning Java Lists or string from Java code. Play with this and see how it works.
How do we get the content of an attached document through the REST APIs?
What does it mean to attach a document to a task that has no Process ID???
In coaches, we seem to be able to suspend/postpone a task and then loop back to it and the data is saved … can we do something similar with REST APIs?
There is talk of APIs to “Suspend” processes. What does this mean? What is the state of a process if it is suspended? What of tasks, can they be suspended differently?
There are questions on generating XML directly from the BOs … see https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=411762&tstart=0

The Alert functions need re-researched … are they or are they not part of the product?
Look into what would be involved in creating a Java Object in one service and making that object available in another service. One possible idea would be the use of the WAS Caching technology: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v7r0/topic/com.ibm.websphere.express.doc/info/exp/ae/tdyn_distmap.html
