JBPM5 - Using Signal Events with sub-processes.

borta_galen Newbie

Hi guys,


I have a simple workflow that contains a sub-process. I have a signal event attached to the sub-process which I plan to signal externally,





However, when I attempt to signal the event within eclipse using ksession.signalEvent("SignalProceed", null); nothing is happening and the process is not moving on.


I have searched around and can not find much / if any information or examples of how to invoke events attached to sub-processes,


I’ve attached my BPMN2 file and am invoking the process via Eclipse using:


public void test_SignalSubProcess() throws Exception {


             KnowledgeBase kbase = createKnowledgeBase("TR_SignalSubProcess.bpmn2");

                  StatefulKnowledgeSession ksession = createKnowledgeSession(kbase);


ProcessInstance processInstance = ksession.startProcess("defaultPackage.TR_SignalSubProcessTest", buildParameters());

ksession.signalEvent("SignalProceed", null);


assertTrue(processInstance.getState() == ProcessInstance.STATE_COMPLETED);




Any help with this would be greatly appreciated,


Thanks  - Tom
