    Question Regarding Behavior of start-state Task

    kazam Newbie

      When I create a process instance programmatically and create a start-task instance, and probe if the stat-task instance is signalling it comes out to be false.
      Also, even if I set it to true, and query the taskInstance, it still says false.

      However, as soon as I end this task, the process moves on forward to the next node, which shows that the start-task was signalling.
      What am I missing here? Thanks, Kazam

      TaskInstance taskInstance = processInstance.getTaskMgmtInstance().createStartTaskInstance();
       taskInstance.setSignalling(true);
       /*Get startTaskInstance information*/
       System.out.println("TaskInstance isOpen "+taskInstance.isOpen()+" isSignalling "+
       taskInstance.isSignalling()+" isBlocking "+taskInstance.isBlocking()
       +" isStartTaskInstance "+taskInstance.isStartTaskInstance()+" isLast "
       +taskInstance.isLast()+" isCancelled "+ taskInstance.isCancelled());
