Angular.js activiti webapp with activiti-rest


Here is a live demo of the activiti created using AngularJs


In the previous post about angular.js and activiti-rest application we have shown how to list users, groups and login. Recently we have decided to fork activiti-webapp-angular and add all of the features from part I in it. Hopefully that this will be real activiti angular.js version.

One of the problems that we had was how to use gruntjs and angular.js factory with activiti-rest without Access-Control-Allow-Origin problem.

In this post we are going to explain how to use gruntjs and angular.js and be able make cross domain http requests without worrying about Access-Control-Allow-Origin.

Solution Explanation

In our case we have

  • Tomcat that runs on port 8080
  • gruntjs that runs on port 9000
  • Apache that runs on port 80

To solve our problem we are going to setup proxy on Apache server that will :

  • proxy path localhost/ -> localhost:9000/
  • proxy path localhost/service -> http://localhost:8080/activiti-rest/service/

This way angular.js application is communicating with itself and there is no access-control problem :).


Solution Technical

After installing Apache add next modules

  • LoadModule proxy_module modules/
  • LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/

in httpd.config add

ProxyPass /service/ http://localhost:8080/activiti-rest/service/ retry=0 timeout=30
ProxyPass / http://localhost:9000/ retry=0 timeout=30


How to use

Access your application on localhost/ , or if you have any other configuration add your Apache url.
