JBPM database contains orphaned records in the SOA platform

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  1. During process execution, we create variables and delete them again by calling context.getContextInstance().deleteVariable( variableName );
  2. We have installed a cron job to periodically delete ended process instances by calling GraphSession.deleteProcessInstance.

At the end all process instences get deleted, but the following tables still hold records:



  • JBoss SOA Platform (SOA-P) 4.3 CP01 / jBPM 3.2.5_SP5

  • JBoss SOA Platform (SOA-P) 4.3 CP02 / jBPM 3.2.7 / jBPM 3.2.8

  • JBoss SOA Platform (SOA-P) 5 / jBPM 3.2.7
