Send Task not working in eclipse(Maven)


I’m quite new to camunda and have been using it mainly with the Eclipse(Maven) IDE. And In my learning process I have been able to make a few successful processes but unfortunately now I face a problem.

I’m able to create .war files and deploy them to camunda but if I add a send or receive task(or send start event or send end event) it becomes impossible for me to build my project an thus I’m unable to create any processes that involve the sending of messages.

Any Help would be much appreciated.


You need to upload your process and explain exactly what kind of error you’re getting.

You’re send event needs some kind of implementation (usually people use a Java Class) unlike a receive message, you need to implement the send logic.

I’m also very happy you’ve found the tutorial videos useful. :slight_smile:


Thanks alot Niall that solved my problem
