    Error message while using JPAKnowledgeService and how to do external Signaling with persistence

    binglim Newbie

      Hi,

       

      I am trying to use persistence such that an external signaling can continue a workflow process that is in a wait-state.

      (I plan on running SignalEvent.java after ProcessMain is in a wait state to trigger the signal node and continue with the workflow)

      However, I get these errors when I run ProcessMain.java.

       

       

       

       

      Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalStateException: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException

      1) I read the documentations and it states:
      // recreate the session from database using the sessionId

      ksession = JPAKnowledgeService.loadStatefulKnowledgeSession( sessionId, kbase, null, env );

       

      Does the kbase has to be the original knowledgebase? or am I allowed to create a new knowledgebase but as long as the sessionId is correct, I can signal a bpmn workflow externally that is on a different knowledgebase?

       

       

       

      2) Can someone elaborate what the error message means and how to do external signaling with persistence and JPAKnowledgeService?

       

       

      Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

       

      Best,
