    Unexpected behaviour of taskInstance

    for Jbpm Novice

      Hi!

      This may sound weird.
      This is my obesrvation (there may be some reason behind it and I would be glad if someone can tell me that)

      In my action handler I am using methods
      1.executionContext.getContextInstance().getProcessInstance().getTaskMgmtInstance().getSwimlaneInstance(taskInstance.getSwimlaneInstance().getSwimlane().getName()).getActorId()
      2.taskInstance.getName()
      3.taskInstance.getSwimlaneInstance().getSwimlane().getName()
      4.executionContext.getContextInstance().getProcessInstance()


      methods (Just printing these variables)

      My Process has 4 step
      start--> WE-->PI--> End
      Swimlane WE is for user(ernie) and PI if for user(bert)
      I am using action handler for WE step. (i.e. printing these variavles here)

      When ernie or grover starts the process , I get correct output ;
      i.e.
      1. ernie
      2.taskWE
      3.WE
      4.org.jbpm.graph.exe.ProcessInstance@173a14c (for e.g.)

      But If Cookie Monster or bert start the process, I get output as
      1. Cookie Monster (or bert)
      2. task (which is a start task)
      3. Null ( as there is no swimlane assigned for start task)
      4.Exception is :java.lang.NullPointerException

      I dont understand why there is a difference in the output of the same program???
      I would like to know any inputs in this regard.

      B.T.W. 3.0.6 gpd is g8!

      It somewhat related to http://jira.jboss.com/jira/browse/JBPM-500
      Thanks and Regards,
