Step 1 - How user can assign task to other

The idea of this exercise is one user assign a task to other.

To do it you should:

  • Create two forms in one user will set the user who will execute the next task.
  • First task will be assigned to user okmAdmin.
  • Create a class which implements AssignmentHandler and assign to taks2.
