    create a new boundary event

      Hi guys,

       

      I want to implement a timeout event for one of my processes. I saw an example where there's a boundaryEvent -> Script -> End flow integrated in the main flow .bpmn (it's not connected to any other process), and basically it sets a timer cycle attached to some reference, which expires after a while (in my specific case, I want to force abortion of the task if it's not completed after 6 hours). Here's the bit of code of the example I downloaded:

       

          <boundaryEvent id="_4" name="TimerEvent" attachedToRef="_7" >

            <timerEventDefinition>

              <timeCycle xsi:type="tFormalExpression">500ms</timeCycle>

            </timerEventDefinition>

          </boundaryEvent>

       

      When trying to implement this in my actual project, I noticed there was no editor in the eclipse .bpmn interface for setting up boundary event, only intermediateCatchEvent. When I changed the .bpmn file code, it doesn't save my custom boundary event, it just overwrites it. So my question is, how can I set a boundary event in jbpm5.4 using Eclipse?

       

      Cheers
