    Couple of questions about some jBPM functionality

      I've finally took the plunge and started the application... I have a pretty cool data structure that holds my various user profile attributes based on the hibernate Map<Entity, Entity> capability. I chose this route because our user application from is ALWAYS changing from management, outside influences, new apps coming online, etc.

      To handle this user form during the process, I was thinking about just referencing a new hibernated entity and then merging into the 'finished' application forms at the end of the process. The trick here is I want each of the nodes to access the form in different ways. So, does it sound appropriate to implement a custom node that can deal with the permissions on the attribute data map? I can see an alternative to this would be to use the standard node types and simply merge the process variables into a new application form at the end of the process.

      Also, another thing I was wondering about, is there a way to 'cancel' or draw back tasks associated with a given node or process? This would be useful if the user cancels the workflow.

      Let me know if I need to clarify anything.
