I've been using the legacy Document Attach in the BPM 8.0 without problem.
but since I've updated to BPM 8.0.1 the toolkits given stop working,
is there any work around for file upload and excel fetching in BPM 8.0.1
because, the project really needs this feature and it will go live soon.

Re: Legacy Document Attach on BPM 8.0.12012-12-05T17:08:17ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.The chap that wrote these samples is no longer with IBM. It isn't clear who (if anyone) might be picking up any additional maintenance. I'd suggest grabbing the code now. Remember that these samples are "as-is" so if used, you are responsible for their maintenance and support. If from one release to the next, the as-is code stops working, the option is to "hope" that the originator of the code is willing to fix it or to realize that the code was "as-is" in the first place and try and figure out what may be wrong with it and patch it yourself.

it doesn't need to be legacy, what I need is a file upload to the server directory.

A second thought it to use the "heritage coach" technology. This should support the original controls.
A third thought would be to use the IBM BPM CMIS support built into IBM BPM. This would allow you to leverage a Enterprise Content Management system such as the IBM FileNet product or the free Alfresco product. IBM BPM provides coach views that allow you to upload and view the content. These seem to be the "successors" to the original file upload mechanisms. By using this technology one could argue that document upload is now where it belongs ... in the domain of the class of solution known as ECM.
A fourth thought would be to use yet another "as-is" sample (see: http://bpmwiki.blueworkslive.com/display/samples/File+Uploader) but once again you are stepping into the "free source code provided and you get what you pay for".
Of these, and without knowing anything about your project needs, I would suggest looking closer at the CMIS support against a content management system. It is the most flexible and most likely to be with us for many, many years to come.

I am trying to work with the Legacy Document Attach widget for BPM 8.0.1, but I am experiencing some difficulties. I used the Legacy Document Attach widget for BPM 8.0 without any problems, but the ported version consistently returns the following error when I use it in my service "TypeError:document is null"
Is anyone else experiencing the same issue, or is anyone able to shed some light on what the problem may be and how to go about fixing it.
