my question today is about the life of instances (process) in the database.
What i mean is that i have decided that the information that the user give me by completion of forms will be put in the process variables (i think of using some java objects because there is a really lot of infos). Those process variables are persisted in the databse with the process instance itself.
Here is my question :
will those variables stay forever in the database ?
i'mm asking because in the futur we will need guaranted access to these informations for example for reporting considerations etc ...
yes, unless you delete the database, processinstances or something like that
