    Starting process from a jsp

    Frank Newbie

      Hello,
      I have drawn the process with JBPM plugin, now I need to invoke the process from my web application.

      Unfortunately when I try to parse the process definition from my Startup-Servlet

      ProcessDefinition processDefinition = ProcessDefinition.parseXmlResource("processdefinition.xml");


      I get

      17:32:39,531 ERROR [JpdlXmlReader] couldn't parse process definition
      org.dom4j.DocumentException: null Nested exception: null

      This is the checklist I have done:

      -Added all jbpm libraries (the same I use with my Eclipse-JBPM Project) under lib of web application

      -Added under WEB-INF the files: hibernate.cfg.xml, jbpm.cfg.xml, processdefinition.xml

      I'm using JBoss 4.0.x

      What else am I missing ??
      Thanks a lot
