How are you trying to do it?
I tried to get the startDate from taskInstance and set that in TaskBean constructor.Then I tried to get it from taskBean in the jsp page.
Is there any way I can do it ?
What is a TaskBean? Show code!
he (sxj) is probably using jbpm by itself. There is a TaskBean in there that sits between the api and the ui.
The 'show code' still stands, a unit tests showing the behaviour would be even better, but sxj, post this to the jbpm users forum.
