    When is the process state saved

    whabelitz Newbie



      In which situation is the state of a process stored? During a user task or a service task until it is completed or aborted? During waiting for a signal or running a timer until it is expired? Is the status of the process changed to SUSPENDED during this time?


      So in which situations I can shutdown the application running the workflow engine with active persistence without loosing the actual state of a workflow process? Inside chapter 7 of the user guide it is named "safe points". So I want to know what are the safe points?
