take a look at hibernate.cfg.xml file, where you can find the hibernate.hbm2ddl and check if is not in drop-create.
This will cause your behaviour...
let me know if this is not your problem.
That was it!
I changed <property name="hbm2ddl.auto">drop-create</property> to <property name="hbm2ddl.auto">update</property> and it works!
Thanks a lot!
just out of curiosity.... who put the drop-create there? Not something that came with jBPM out of the box did it?
It is the default setting for all the Jboss Seam Examples that use jBPM
ok, so it is a seam issue ;-)
