Hello everyone,

I am trying to deploy a workflow example : I chose the "simple" example whitch is included in every jbpm project created by the Eclipse plugin.
The deployment went well (I used the workflow console) but then when running the workflow, I get a nullpointer exception (sorry but the message is in french):

Veuillez corriger les erreurs ci-dessous puis cliquez sur Terminer.
* Une erreur système s'est produite pendant l'opération : null

the stack trace shows :

Does anybody know where this could come from?
Thanks a lot!!

Edit :
When I look at StartWorkflowWizard.java:150 I see a
// TODO: Deal with workflows that don't require any data
The "simple" example doesn't seem to have any data so may this be the cause?
