    ActorId & PooledActors

    Ardavan Metghalchi Newbie

      Hi everyone,

      Can a TaskInstance object have a value for the:

      String actorId

      variable and at the same time for the

      String[] actorIds

      or when you set the actorId to some value then you can't have any "pooled actors".

      Thank you

          You can set pooled actors as well actor also.
          You can do the following
          assignable.setPooledActors(new String[]{"userA", "userB"});

            Thanks for your answer Swatis.
            I am traveling around and don't have access to jBPM code for now on.

            My issue is:

            First by implementing the AssignmentHandlerInterface and using:
            assignable.setPooledActors(new String[] { groupNameId });
            I assign a taskinstance to a group of people.

            When a userA wants to "end" the taskInstance, the code is:

            After when I run a simple query looking for taskInstances that are ended and have pooledActors equal to groupNamedId, I have no results;
            as if my taskInstance.getPooledActors was equal to null.

            Is it comprehensible?

              Collection l_objClTskInstances = executionContext.getTaskMgmtInstance(
              Iterator it = l_objClTskInstances.iterator();

              while(it.hasNext()) {
              TaskInstance l_objTskInstance = (TaskInstance) it.next();
              if(l_objTskInstance.hasEnded()) {

              Iterator antIt = l_objTskInstance.getPooledActors().iterator();
              while(antIt.hasNext()) {
              PooledActor l_objPooledActor = (PooledActor) antIt.next();
              System.out.println("hello pooled task instance actors are " +

                Thank you my friend.
                There was an issue in my query. Now I am using this query and get the right information.

                public List findEndedPooledTaskInstancesByName(List actorIds) {
                 JbpmContext jbpmContext = Tools.jbpmConfiguration.createJbpmContext();
                 try {
                 List taskList;
                 Query query =
                 getSession(jbpmContext).createQuery("select distinct ti\n" +
                 " from org.jbpm.taskmgmt.exe.PooledActor pooledActor "+
                 " join pooledActor.taskInstances ti " +
                 " where pooledActor.actorId in ( :actorIds ) " +
                 " and ti.actorId != null " +
                 " and ti.end != null");
                 query.setParameterList("actorIds", actorIds);
                 taskList = query.list();
                 return taskList;
                 } finally {
