I am trying to work out if the BPMN2 Eclipse designer in jBPM5.1 can support what I see here - http://docs.jboss.org/drools/release/5.2.0.Final/droolsjbpm-introduction-docs/html/ch02.html
188.8.131.52. Timers and Calendars
Looks like the support is in jBPM4 (https://issues.jboss.org/browse/JBPM-2889) not in jBPM5. So you need to roll your own if you want CRON. I want it as a Time task , not as a Start task anyway. Then I can have an entry point that has a diverging choice immediately after it and I can then pass in a String that the choice mvel uses to choose a path and therefore jump part way through a workflow, or choose a Timer task with CRON which runs at the designated times until the Process is stopped.
