How to deal with Process Updates in Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite 6?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • What is the recommended approach do deal with updates of BPMN 2 processes?
  • As it is found out, users can't deploy a new version of a process, when there are still instances of the old process definition. Do they have to deploy two versions of their application, one for each process definition, in the migration time? Or is it possible to use the process version, which is specified in the process definition, to handle this problem?
  • Furthermore is there a possibility to upgrade process instances to a new process definition version?
