Interface ProcessDefinition

  • public interface ProcessDefinition
    An object structure representing an executable process composed of activities and transitions. Business processes are often created with graphical editors that store the process definition in certain file format. These files can be added to a Deployment artifact, such as for example a Business Archive (.bar) file. At deploy time, the engine will then parse the process definition files to an executable instance of this class, that can be used to start a ProcessInstance.
