A) Previously I was making bmpn file looking at the user guide. For e.g as below
—————————————–
<process id="commentsVerification" name="Comments Workflow Verification Process">
      <startEvent id="theStart" />
      <sequenceFlow id="flow1" sourceRef="theStart" targetRef="enterCommentsTask" />
    <userTask id="enterCommentsTask" name="Enter Comments by Author" >
     <documentation>
        Enter Comments which requires verification
      </documentation>
      <potentialOwner>
        <resourceAssignmentExpression>
      <formalExpression>author</formalExpression>
        </resourceAssignmentExpression>
      </potentialOwner>
    </userTask>
—————————————–


B) But now start making the bpmn diagram using the Activiti Modeler (in Mozilla Firefox) but found that it generates the xml file in different format. For e.g as below

—————————-
- <task completionQuantity="1" id="sid-3F1725E3-D082-4D85-9C5C-3FE6AE58D0EF" isForCompensation="false" name="Enter Comments Task" startQuantity="1">
- <extensionElements>
  <signavio:signavioMetaData metaKey="bgcolor" metaValue="#ffffcc" />
  </extensionElements>
  <incoming>sid-B1776E35-342F-4EE9-9F61-FB445C565EC9</incoming>
  <outgoing>sid-B15F96FA-E82C-43B3-AF49-15DC62479242</outgoing>
—————————–


Q 1) Can somehow this (B) be changed to bpmn file format as first one (A) so that it is more readable and clearly understood? Also then in that case it can be edited directly in xml file?
Q 2) Also, I noticed there are two xml files generated : test.bpmn20.xml and test.signavio.xml
What is the difference between them?

Sandeep
