This is more of a SEAM question, but if anyone has an answer here I would appreciate it.
In the dvd example a process instance is retrieved using an entity bean's id. Is jBPM aware of all entity beans or how is it aware that there is a process that has an orderId of x value?
ProcessInstance pi = (ProcessInstance) context.getSession()
.createQuery("select pi from LongInstance si join si.processInstance pi " +
"where si.name = 'orderId' and si.value = :orderId")
.setLong( "orderId", order.getOrderId() )
