    Newbie: executing forked paths in parallel

    efi plotkin Newbie

      Hi,

      I am looking at JBPM as a candidate workflow engine. My current understanding is that if I fork a path of execution into multiple concurrent paths, all of them will be executed in one thread (for each path: until it reaches the join node or a wait state) - sequentially.

      I need to understand what are my options if I want to execute them in parallel - i.e. in multiple threads (I can bring my own pool for the purpose). My usecase is: I need to execute lots of (independent) queries against (multiple) databases with varying (sometimes bad) response time, while keeping the runtime very low and the workflow definition readable by a Business Analyst.

      Thanks,
