Sorry I have forgotten to insert the code tag so the xml doesn't appear:
Hope this time it will be shown:
<task-node name="node1"><task name="node_task1" swimlane="/swim"> <event type="task-create"> <script> <expression> taskInstance.setVariable("var1", "value"); taskInstance.setVariable("var2", "value"); </expression> </script> </event> </task> <transition name="" to="join1"></transition> </task-node>
1: Not on the short roadmap. If it is not in the Jira, create an issue and it will (eventually) be assigned a version.
2: A generic java based actionhandler which takes it's input as normal actionhandlers do and sets the variables
3: As you can see, jbpm has 2 ways to set a value designtime. Maybe not the way you like it, but the functionality is there
