They can be executed before and after (pre- and post-) transitions from one state to another in the finite state machine. OSWorkflow supports the following forms of functions:

<li>Java classes retrieved via JNDI</li>
<li>Remote EJBs</li>
<li>Local EJBs</li>

</h3><p class="paragraph"></p>OSWorkflow also includes a small set of <a href="Utility_Functions.html">Utility Functions</a> that will start you off in the right direction. Some of these utility functions are extremely valuable in creating dynamic workflow definitions.</body></html>
