          I have some simple examples using escalation and deadlines here:



          They are very simple examples, but I think they will serve as a starting point for you.

            Finally got it working..... a bit. However, I am not using any processes. Just creating task and setting all those deadline things. The emails are being sent out as notifications but I get a NullPointerException like this.

            I believe this is because I am not setting any WorkItemManager, which I dont have because I dont have any process.


            Is my understanding correct.
