Assigning a task exercise to another user.


The purpose of this exercise is to explain how one user assigns a task to another.

To do this, you should:

  • Create two forms, in one of them the user will setup the task that will be executed by the other user.
  • First task will be assigned to user "okmAdmin".
  • Create a class which implements AssignmentHandler and assign to taks2.

        } else {
  "Task assigned to 'okmAdmin'");
