I have two processes. The first process is triggered using data and what it does is generate statements for MMS, print, email, archive PDF’s and then proofs. When the MMS file is produced, the MMS pdf outputs to the Data In folder of Process 2. Process 1 continues to run until completion.
After Process 1 is complete, Process 2 then splits the pdf, renaming each individual file using its telephone number and converts each individual pdf to jpg and uploads them to a ftp folder.
What I really thought would happen is that when Process 1 sends the MMS file to Process 2, Process 2 would start doing its thing while Process 1 continues. However Process 2 waits till Process 1 completes before starting. Process 1 uses merge/weaverengines. Process 2 only uses run scripts, pdf splitter, math op, external program, create file, zip job, ftp out, send email plugins, so no weaver/mergeengines.
Is there a way for Process 2 to start running while Process 1 is still completing? Or does Workflow see both as large jobs and therefore queued?
