    JBPM5 Content data problem

    S Root Newbie

      Hi all!

      I was wondering if someone might be able to assist with this.

      I have a process with a custom task and User Task,

      I have Map and couple of Strings def


      ined as process variables.

      When the process goes to human task, and I retrieve


      the Content for the Task via the TaskClient using Mina, I am unable to restore the Map. I found the following in the HumanTaskExample and it is exactly what I was doing

      Content content = getContentResponseHandler.getContent();

      ByteArrayInputStream bis = new ByteArrayInputStream(content.getContent());

      ObjectInputStream in;

      in = newObjectInputStream(bis);

      Object result = in.readObject();


      Map<?, ?> map = (Map<?, ?>) result;



      The problem is that "result" at this point is seen as a java.lang.String. All of my data is there when I print it out but I am unable to cast it back to a map. My process variable Map is being set when I complete the previous workitem


      Am I missing something here? Looking at the JBPM source and examples it seems like this should work.



      I'd appreciate all input, thanks.
